„MobileMonday“ is a global community of mobile industry visionaries, developers and influentials fostering cooperation and cross-border business development through virtual and live networking events to share ideas, best practices and trends from global markets. International movement “MobileMonday” has the following objectives:
“MobileMonday” phenomenon began almost by accident in Helsinki, Finland during the autumn of 2000. A couple of well-known Finnish visionaries invited the who’s who of the Finnish mobile industry to a pub for an informal get-together and perhaps a warming drink. The only suitable time for this meeting was Monday evening. After meeting many new faces and discussing the latest in mobility, the group decided to continue meeting on the first Monday of each month — and thus, “MobileMonday” was born.
Towards the end of 2004, the movement started to spread to other areas of the world and new “MobileMonday” chapters were started in Tokyo (Japan), Silicon Valley (United States of America) as well as Rome and Milan (Italy). Since then, the number of “MobileMonday” chapters and members has dramatically increased making “MobileMonday” the world’s leading mobile community. During the “MobileMonday” meetings, mobile market players and enthusiasts present and discuss latest news, hottest topics and trends in the mobile industry. Such events are purely public and non-formal, with participation not only from professionals but also from mobile industry fans or future experts.
