Twelve companies have been chosen from the initial entries. Each company will have 3 minutes in which to present their ideas (without using PowerPoint) and the judges then have the opportunity to ask questions. The finalists are listed below - some familiar MoMoLo faces among them, good luck to them all!

I just spotted this on the global Mobile Monday website and thought I should share with you. The annual Movember campaign is gearing up and Mobile Monday is thrilled to support this fantastically Fun – and – Worthy cause. Check details below and get your training pants on to Grow a Mo in Movember! You can see the full article here http://www.mobilemonday.net/09/2011/mobile-monday-movember-mobro-smiles.html
The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The guys behind it joked about 80’s fashion and decided it was time to bring the moustache back. In order to justify their Mos (Australian slang for moustache), they used their new looks to raise money for prostate cancer research… never dreaming that facial hair would ultimately lead to a global movement that would get men talking about a taboo subject – their health.
A Mo Bro starts Movember – the month formerly known as November – clean shaven, and grows a moustache all month long, garnering support from friends and family in the form of donations. What’s more, a Mo Bro is a walking billboard for the cause as his new look opens the door for him to talk about cancers affecting men – making the moustache a symbol, much like the pink ribbon is for breast cancer. Each Movember culminates in a Gala Partè in major cities around the globe where Mo Bros dress up to match their Mo, channelling the likes of Tom Selleck, Gandhi and Ron Burgandy, vying for the ultimate accolade: Man of Movember.
While growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (women who support their guys) form an important part of Movember by recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds and attending Movember events. In the UK, this is Movember United Kingdom – The Prostate Cancer Charity. This is happening all over the world, so check the MoMo Global website for details of your local Movember initiative http://www.mobilemonday.net/09/2011/mobile-monday-movember-mobro-smiles.html.
As a Mo Sista I look forward to supporting the Mo Bros next month - although I’m not so sure I’m looking forward to the accompanying fashions…
