    With little over a month left until our first edition of TNW Conference USA in New York, it is now time to reveal the first 15 finalists of our Mobile Startup Rally.

    The biggest technology and media trends are influenced by mobile. That’s why this year’s competition is focussing on the most mobile minded startups. Over a hundred applicants from all over the world participated in a series of video pitches and interviews in order to make it to the final 15 who will present on stage at TNW USA.

    That’s not all though; 5 additional finalist positions will be awarded at the TNW Conference among the startups with a Startup Table or Demo Desk in the exhibitor space.

    The competition is proudly sponsored by Adyen. Starting in 2006 by a small team of payment experts, Adyen has now spawned a company that employs more than 150 people in seven countries on four continents. Being a very successful startup themselves, they are delighted to share their lessons and discuss today’s modern payment strategies that will successfully propel participating startups towards their monetization goals.

    Mobile Startup Rally aside, TNW USA will be host to a great set of speakers on tech, media, entertainment and fashion. The event takes place on 1 and 2 October 2013 in New York (Chelsea). You can still grab a steep discount (35% off) by registering two tickets or more before September 6th.
