Members Exposed to Israeli Mobile Technologies
Over 70 members and guests were treated to presentations by 3 innovative Israeli mobile technology companies at the December 11th breakfast event hosted by at&t in Atlanta. Sharing their solutions were Tel Aviv-based C4 that specializes in development, marketing and delivery of Command & Control systems; Netanya-based eVigilo whose mission is to enhance emergency responders’ mass notification capabilities by using a geo-targeted multi-channel alert and notification system; and Tel Aviv-based Mobli that utilizes social media by leveraging the power of smart phones, enabling people to quickly and easily share and experience events via high-quality videos and photos uploaded on-location and in real-time.
Glenn Lurie, at&t’s President, Emerging Enterprises & Partnerships, delivered the keynote address. His company has one of its three global innovation development centers, known as the at&t Foundry, in Tel Aviv. A panel of experts that included Doug Busk (The Coca-Cola Company) and Andrea Busse (IntelaText) was moderated by Dawn Ely (Global Success Centers). David Teske, head of the IP Tech Group at Alston & Bird, the I-3 series sponsor, shared key legal considerations.
The event was spearheaded by AICC’s Hi-Tech Committee. “We were pleased to offer a topical program on Mobility, certainly a key driver of how we do business today and in the future. Clearly, the Israelis are top innovators in this field, and we look forward to assisting these and other Israeli companies in their US market plans,” said Adam Coffsky (Gartner), chairman of the committee.
