The Mobile Monday (MoMo) Story
Mobile Monday is a global community of mobile industry visionaries, developers and influentials fostering cooperation and business development through educational and networking events. Its objectives include encouraging innovation in the mobile industry, facilitating networking between companies in the mobile ecosystem and presenting innovative visions, trends, and studies.
The remarkable MoMo phenomenon began almost by accident in Helsinki, Finland during the chilly autumn of 2000. Vesa-Matti ‘Vesku’ Paananen, a well-known Finnish mobile visionary, invited more than fifty mobile innovators to an Irish pub for an informal get-together and perhaps a warming drink. The only suitable time? You guessed it, Monday evening. After meeting many new faces and discussing the latest in mobility, the group decided to continue meeting each month Monday of each month – and Mobile Monday was born. Click here for more history.
