DULUTH, Ga., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's official: Vodi is part of the 2016 class of CTIA's StartUp Lab! As a finalist, the innovative and functionality-packed over-the-top (OTT) messaging app will join 28 other seed and growth-stage companies participating in the program at CTIA Super Mobility, scheduled for September 7 and 8 in Las Vegas.
With its powerful suite of prepaid mobile recharge, eGift and international calling (Vodi Out) features complementing a messaging app core, Vodi has seized a growing portion of the OTT market and is poised to make a bold impression in fast pitches on the show floor. The app's unique business-to-business model facilitates strong industry partnerships and unlocks new global monetization opportunities, while its worldwide appeal and inherent versatility make it imminently marketable.
Industry trade group CTIA (originally the Cellular Telephone Industries Association) advocates for the wireless industry at all government levels and coordinates voluntary best practices and initiatives. Its yearly Super Mobility conference brings together wireless leaders for keynotes, education sessions and exhibits that foster collaboration and growth.
CTIA's StartUp Lab, established in 2014, accepts companies focused in six verticals: Video, Cybersecurity, Advertising/Marketing, Connected Transportation, The Internet of Things and Wireless. Vodi, selected in the vertical of Wireless, will hope to join past winners—such as home security and automation service PEQ and children's smartphone innovator YipYap—that have taken off with the help of the fundraising and networking opportunities afforded to them by the program.
This year's StartUp Lab winners will be announced on September 8 on the Connected Life & StartUp Stage. The program is made possible by the CTIA Innovation Council, advisors, sponsorships from iconectiv and Kelly Drye & Warren LLP and in-kind support from f6s.com.
