New York, NY – May 30, 2012 – Verve Wireless, Inc., the leading mobile publishing and advertising platform for local and national media, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMobile Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMobile 100 signifies leadership among its peers and cites game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Verve was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Verve and other OnMobile Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnMobile event, co-presented with OnMobile Global Ltd., on June 13th, 2012, at The Fox Theater in Redwood City, CA.
This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the top emerging mobile companies are creating new business opportunities in the hot, high-growth mobile market.
“With the quickly maturing mobile market, opportunities are opening up almost faster than entreprenuers can respond.
