Monday, August 4, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (AEST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
How do you win an African Innovation award? Let's ask mHITs!
Fresh from winning the 2014 African Mobile Financial Service (MFS) innovation of the year award at the Mondato Summit Africa in Johannesburg South Africa, mHITs CEO Harold Dimpel will share with us the road to victory in South Africa. We'll hear about BuyPower Namibia, the winning entry that now represents a break-through in micro-billing for Africa.
Industry briefing: Beacons
Nope, not the lighting; we're talking about devices that can trigger location-based actions and features on smartphones. So what are these beacons and what exactly do they do? How different are they from NFC tags? And where do beacons fit in the iOs/ Android ecosystem? To provide a beacons briefing on the night will be mNet's Andrew Banzas. If you think you're an innovator or sitting on the cusp of mobile innovation, you wouldn't want to miss this!
