Stories from Last Year

There are some great stories from last year: 

Gary from Double, with Nana and Cathleen
Chris Michael joined The (first) Mobile Academy in 2012 and has been an active member of the community ever since - giving advice to later cohorts and taking the stage at Mobile Monday Demo Nights. We are really excited to let you know that he has now secured funding for Swytch from Neil Hutchinson (Neon Adventures), Yannick Roux (EC1 Capital), James Hilton (CEO of M&C Saatchi Mobile) amongst others with the service launching in October 2015.

He recounts his experience from winning a stand in our Village at Apps World last year: 
“…Over the two days at Apps World we were able to showcase a very early version of the Swytch app to hundreds of people and get their feedback on the service. This was invaluable to us as we were getting first hand contact with potential users at a time where we could take action and build a service that users really wanted. We did get some press exposure too as an interesting upcoming service…”

Scramboo, told us about two of their favourite conversations: "I met a major English football club that are very interested in the product and someone on the first day refused to tell us their identity but later I later received a LinkedIn invite from them - turns out they were very senior in a large corporate...it was very worthwhile"

Gary McDonagh came to The Mobile Academy in 2014 and has told us what a great experience it was for him too and his Startup “Double” http://www.joindouble.com/. He met journalist Eric Auchard, chief tech correspondent for EMEA at Reuters who wrote about them here:  http://reut.rs/1isIykW. He also met the Incubus London team and got on to their pre-accelerator programme as well as Microsoft Ventures where they got to the final.
