Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

Industry organisation the GSMA has published a list of the “world’s most promising growth-stage companies,” to identify the next generation of connectivity and digital services. It is called the ‘GSMA 100.’

According to the organisation, those on the list were chosen by mobile operators and investment partners. The priorities for selection included innovative work around 5G and networking, AI/machine learning, IOT and more.

Laxmi Akkaraju, chief strategy officer, GSMA said: “The initiative is driven by our operator members, based on their common innovation priorities, and is designed to identify those companies with the most compelling use cases and innovative business models.

“It will be critical in accelerating business development, commercial partnerships and investment with mobile operator and key partners and, ultimately, in the deployment of next-generation networks and digital services.”

Companies named in the first ‘cohort’ include: 3TEN8, Affirmed Networks, AISense, Allganize, Anomali, BehavioSec, BigPanda, Cape, Centrify, Cleverciti, Couchbase, d.rect, Dashbot, Devo, Fullstory, Fungible, Headspin, LotusFlare, MobiledgeX, Rombit, Sedona Systems, Sentience, TRIPP, Verdigris, Versa Networks, Worldsensing, Xage and Zimperium.

The rest of the names will be made public later in the year, firstly in February at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, and then in June at Mobile World Congress Shanghai.
