Mc Lean, VA (PRWEB) May 12, 2010
Disruptathon for Mobile Business Apps was held on May 6th at the Teqcorner innovation conference center in Mclean, VA as the first of a six event series for 2010. The event highlighted innovations that impact the mobile business user with advancements presented by Zerion Software, Telenav, Mobomo, Dub, BoxTone, ZoomSafer and Ringio. Attendees provided feedback using the Disruptathon™ Innovation Discovery™ platform. The platform allows users with iPhones or attendee issued iPod Touch devices to provide real-time feedback during presentations. The system also connects featured innovators with audience members that request a follow up using the app.
“Disruptathon is a perfect venue for any innovative company to present what they are working on” Says Sze Wong founder of Zerion Software. “It allows entrepreneurs to break from the standard sales or funding pitch and focus on innovation, which is no less important and somewhat refreshing.” he added.
Joining the series with the top-level “breakthrough” sponsorship designation is leading software concept, design, and development firm Cynergy, based in Washington, DC.
“We are thrilled to have such a high quality partner in Cynergy” said Pete Erickson, founder of Disruptathon. “Disruptathon is a creative innovation venue and to have one of the top innovators in software as a partner adds to this tremendously” He added.
Cynergy played an integral role in the event with Dave Wolf, Vice President of Strategy, acting as event moderator. Cynergy will also be involved in future events showing off some of their latest software applications.
“Sponsoring Disruptathon is a great opportunity for Cynergy as we seek to surround ourselves with innovative thinkers and dialogue with companies willing to push the envelope. This is what we do. We innovate.” Said Dave Wolf, Vice President of Strategy at Cynergy.
The series continues on May 26th at the British Embassy with an event focused on government IT and mobile innovations and June 22nd at the Canadian Embassy with a Clean Tech IT event featuring cutting edge green innovations from both the U.S. and Canada.
