BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA - September 23, 2010 - Navitas Games, Inc., a Berkeley developer of mobile applications, has been selected as a Finalist in the Most Innovative Location Everywhere Solution category of the Locations & Beyond Summit 2010 Fast Pitches. The audience at the Summit will vote for their favorite Fast-Pitch and the winners will be announced at the evening Awards Program on October 6, 2010, at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco.
Navitas Games was selected based on its TAPTIN location-based gaming and business search platform. According to the Navitas CEO, Kevin Leong, “The TAPTIN platform is innovative and unique in several ways. It enables the rapid deployment of locally-branded mobile apps to target specific major metropolitan areas to capture the hyper-local mind-share. It also supports organizations that manage merchant networks, such as chambers of commerce and trade organizations, by providing them with the technology they need to manage their merchant database on location-aware mobile apps. Finally, we have a community partnership program that entrepreneurs and local media companies can participate in to initiate localized apps and share revenue.”
The Locations & Beyond Summit seeks out new and innovative companies that are contributing to the diversity of the connected location ecosystem by making location solutions work or useful everywhere. Leong commented, “Locations & Beyond is looking for companies that are changing the user experience, and helping to create new business opportunities. With our TAPTIN platform, Navitas Games is not only changing how location apps are delivered to the market as hyper-local apps, but is also addressing the pain-point of maintaining merchant networks and creating new business opportunities for entrepreneurs everywhere.”
