Earlier this week, we released the first in our new video series—Startup Spotlight. We are kicking it off with none other than our 2015 Mobileys 1st place winner, Christine Bork of CureSearch CancerCare.
There are 27 million Americans either starting or running their own business today, with more entrepreneurs in our country than ever before. Mobile technology is driving these risk-takers to create new ways to make a difference in every aspect of our lives, making mobile tech one of the brightest areas in entrepreneurship. By 2017, 270 billion apps will be downloaded globally. Last year, a report announced that for the first time ever, U.S. consumers now spend more time in apps than they do watching T.V. This growth helps explain why entrepreneurs are taking a much closer of a look at this sector.
Startup Spotlight will showcase our Mobileys winners and feature creative innovators that we meet across the country who are changing and impacting all of our lives in meaningful ways. If you are a budding entrepreneur, you may soon see yourself on our Startup Spotlight.
