Being one of the fastest growing markets today, the mobile apps market has become the main attraction for large companies like Google and Apple, but also for start-up companies that believe we hold the next revolution in our hands, or rather in our pockets, these days.
The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona or as it is called by many, the “MWC”, has become the “main event” for this phenomenal market.
Every year towards the end of February, the whole mobile market stops everything its doing and waits with much anticipation for the MWC to start. To many, it is considered to be the birthplace of miracles. Many mobile devices and groundbreaking technologies were first introduced during the MWC.
Every year there is some presence of Israeli companies and start-ups at the MWC, but this year topped the charts! Israel truly was the “belle of the ball”, with no less than 120 Israeli start-up companies showing up to the MWC, showing off their promising mobile apps and cutting edge technologies.
Versatile solutions were presented by the Israeli start-up companies in many areas ranging from Games for kids to complex medical solutions. Some companies presented on their own, while others were part of the Israeli delegation called the “app store” and initiated by the Israeli export institute.
Israel came in fifth in the number of presenting companies right after the regular giants: United States, United Kingdom, France and Spain.
Given the amount of start-up companies in the mobile business operating in Israel, we expect to see many more next year. We invite you to explore and discover the start-up nation with us!
