4ab43a35f21aff55c1adfcc7c8c13770-1-2Bristol-based Creditcall, developers of award-winning payment app, and Mubaloo, creators of the MiBeacon device, have been added to the prestigious Mobile Entertainment’s top 50 Mobile Innovators list, with Mubaloo being added for its third year running.

Somo Global, digital marketing and app specialists, who recently opened a brand new office in Bristol also made it to the top 50 for its fourth year in a row, demonstrating that the top tech innovators are basing themselves within the increasingly successful Bristol and Bath tech cluster.

The Mobile Innovators list was started up in 2011 to celebrate representatives from the mobile sector for exceptional work in apps, gaming, payments, advertising, education and more, with judges ranging from venture capitalists to analysts and entrepreneurs.

“It’s great to see more innovation coming out of Bristol. More needs to be done to show how much talent there is here”


Mark Mason, CEO and founder of Mubaloo said “The launch of our MiBeacons division earlier this year was instrumental to being recognised again in these awards. The technology’s location-based targeting is helping close the gap between online and real-world interactions between brands and their consumers.

“We are helping companies to make huge improvements to how employees and customers interact with their businesses. It’s great to see more innovation coming out of Bristol. More needs to be done to show how much talent there is here.”

Awards galore

In addition to the Mobile Innovators list, Creditcall have recently been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. CEO Peter Turner, added “Mobile has been one of the biggest catalysts for change over the past 10 years. It has become the new battleground for innovation and opportunity. We recognised this back in 2000 and focused on how best to exploit mobile for innovations in payments. Since then we exported the payments solution to North America and Europe.”

There will be celebration for all the companies named on the Mobile Innovators list at Finsbury Park in London on 1 October. To get involved in the big night, you can purchase tickets through the Mobile Innovators event site.
