GIVP Programme 2012
GIVP 2012 – the story so far
When this year’s contest began, we asked you: Why compete in an innovation contest?
While it's not easy to create outstanding products and solutions, it's even tougher to take it to a global market. Now imagine this: if a great idea were not constrained by lack of opportunity or a global platform how far would it go?
Participating in Logica’s Global Innovation Venture Partner (GIVP) programme was one way to find out. We received an overwhelming number of nominations. The global winner of GIVP 2012 has been announced. It is ‘Conmio Oy’, the mobile technology provider from Finland. Conmio was chosen the winner from among 270 participating companies in 10 countries.
Founded in 2002, Conmio was declared a Deloitte Fast 500 company in 2011 with a five-year growth of close to 600%. Their innovative solution is inspired from their conviction that content and services should be accessible on any web-enabled device. The software features a plug-in development framework, cross-platform, integrated tools and interfaces, flexible hosting and licensing models, and an extensive device library. Their solutions combine the content & device & personal data to generate context-aware user experience for any device.
We take this opportunity to thank everybody for their tremendous interest in GIVP and for making it a truly remarkable event, year after year!
The GIVP programme is a no holds barred contest with only one keyword: Innovation. We’re looking for an idea which can make life easier and more efficient, or one that can change the way the world works.
