Well, for those of us that this affects, school holidays are nearly over - but never mind, the summer seems still to be with us. Hoping that everyone who had the time to take one had a good break, here at MoMoLo Towers we're kicking off the Autumn Season with the ever popular Demo Night.

The 10th Annual Meffys

Our friends of at MEF have asked us to point out that they're running the Meffys again this year on November 14th. This time - in a break with past tradition - in San Francisco.

Perhaps they missed the point that we're Mobile Monday London :-) but anyway, please be advised that the details for this event are now posted, and application to win a prestigious Meffy award has been extended to September 23rd (apparently, not Sept 6th as it says on the Web site). Anyway, if it's of interest to win a glittering prize why not apply? It's not cheap, but there is a discounted rate for small businesses, we're told.

Mobile Monday Momentum

And while speaking of San Francisco, our colleagues over in Mobile Monday Silicon Valley asked us to make you aware of the Momentum Accelerator Programme. Application deadline has been extended to September 16th, they say. Check out the programme, and see if a 12 week stint in San Francisco with the chance, they say, of up to USD 0.5M in funding is of interest to you.

That's it for now, looking forward to seeing you on Monday and make sure you register!
