Who are the most disruptive people in the mobile industry?
VentureBeat is looking for your nominations. We’ll select one person from the nominations, who will be crowned the Top Mobile Mover at our upcoming Mobile Summit, April 2-3, at Cavallo Point Resort in Sausalito, Calif.
The Top Mobile Mover will also get a ticket to attend the Mobile Summit. This is an exclusive, invitation-only event that will host just 180 of the top executives and investors in the mobile industry, for intimate discussions and high-level networking and deal-making. So you definitely want to be there.
How to nominate
Use the form at the bottom of this post to nominate people you think qualify as a “Top Mobile Mover” in 2012.
We’re looking for the individuals — not companies — who have done the most to shake up the mobile industry. These people could be entrepreneurs, executives at larger companies, venture capitalists, inventors, or even scientists. The only limitation is that the people be real, and living.
The deadline to submit nominations is Thursday, March 15, at 5pm Pacific time.
We’ll consider all the nominations we receive and announce a short list of the 10 most disruptive, innovative Mobile Movers on Friday, March 16.
Then we’ll invite your votes on the short list. Sorry, but because it’s so easy to stuff ballot boxes online, we’re not going to make the votes binding, but they will factor into our judges’ decision. We will announce the winner — one lucky individual — at the Mobile Summit.
Nominate yourself, if you’re brazen enough, but make sure you give us a good reason to consider your nomination. Whoever you nominate, please include contact information so we can reach you (and the nominee, if you represent that person).
About the Mobile Summit
Who will be at the Mobile Summit? We’ll have representatives from the major carriers, device makers, investors, developers, analysts, retailers, brands, and the hottest private mobile companies. Some of the companies already confirmed to attend include Google, LinkedIn, Nielsen, Yelp, Motorola, Box, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Nexage, ESPN, Sequoia Capital, Flurry, Ebay, Salesforce, and many more.
It’s a more participatory event than most conferences. Everyone at the Summit will be debating the top trends facing the mobile industry right now, and if last year’s Summit is any indication, those discussions could lead to action.
Featured Mobile Summit participants include the following:
