Some of the most exciting innovations often come from young and small companies. At VentureBeat’s MobileBeat event this year, we introduced Nest as a way to spotlight some of the most impressive emerging companies disrupting the mobile space today.
We sat down and talked with several of them who had some pretty interesting things to say, not just about what they do, but about what they’re most excited about for the near future of mobile.
Francis Doumet, Founder, Adenda
“An app or mobile experience has to have an in-app as well an out-of-app component … such as advertising on the lock screen and putting content on the lock screen.
Neha Sampat, CEO, built.io by raw engineering
“We’ve seen applications that used to take a year or more to build be built in less than a month. And the mobile innovation I’m most excited about is the Internet of APIs. It’s not just about the Internet of things; it’s bigger than that.”
Noah Jessop, Co-Founder & CEO, CommandIQ
“Once you’ve built something for the small screen, it’s about effectively being able to measure as you’re pulling all the knobs and levers. Take the data you’re already collecting across the ecosystem, and use it for tailored calls-to-actions to monetize your apps.”
Jesse Lopez, CEO, Obelus Media
“Focusing on the mobile future is really about optimizing the experience and integrating revenue with that experience — using unused real estate that integrates without interrupting.”
Uyen Tieu, CRO, Rumble
“To really win in this space you have to be very fast and have a system that lets you be responsive and flexible in your decision-making. If you made a wrong choice, you can revert; if you made the right choice, you can double-down.”
