Mobile Scoping 05-13-11

  1. 1. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Mark Horan (617) 669 8340 MASSTLC STUDY SHOWS GREATER BOSTON’S EMERGENCE AS MOBILE POWERHOUSE Sector Now Employs 30,000 Workers at 400 CompaniesCAMBRIDGE, MA, May 13, 2011 – The mobile industry has quickly become one ofMassachusetts’ most formidable economic sectors, with almost 400 companies nowemploying some 30,000 workers, according to a study released today at the MassTLCSpring Meeting.The scoping of the industry, which was conducted by MassTLC’s Mobile Cluster,confirms that Massachusetts has created a mobile hotbed by combining its traditionalstrength in network communications with a surge of activity among youngentrepreneurs specializing in applications development.“This is the first time we’ve quantified what has become readily apparent to the mobileindustry – the Boston area is a world-leading wireless innovation hub,” said WaltDoyle, CEO of Where and a co-chair of MassTLC’s Mobile Cluster. “The energy in theBoston area is second to none.”Underscoring the entrepreneurial character of the environment, the study found thatmore than 80 percent of the mobile companies had fewer than 50 employees.Investment in Massachusetts local startups rose to 82 million dollars in 2010, a 40percent increase over 2009, according to data supplied to MassTLC by Rutberg & Co.,a leading wireless research and investment firm. Even more promising, Rutberg’sdata for the last twelve months suggests local mobile investments are on track todouble this year.
  2. 2. “Our real advantage is the vibrant start-up culture we’ve nurtured here inMassachusetts,” said Carl Stjernfeldt, General Partner at Castile Ventures and aMobile Cluster co-chair. “Young people in particular are naturally drawn to thistechnology and Boston has the advantage of a deep pool of youthful entrepreneurs.”The study also estimates that the sector is generating just under $540 million in sales.The mobile scoping report comes on the heels of a March MassTLC survey of itsmember CEO’s that predicted overall tech employment in Massachusetts would grow13 percent this year. In April, UMass’ “Mass Benchmark” study revealed that the statewas outpacing the nation in job creation and that the tech sector was key to thegrowth.“Based on the evidence we see, the tech sector is driving overall growth and mobile isdriving tech growth,” said Steve Krom, vice president and general manager of AT&Tfor New England and a Mobile Cluster co-chair. “The MassTLC Mobile Cluster will doeverything it can to support this mobile momentum.”MassTLC partnered with BostInnovation to create the list of 400 companies, and useddata culled from various public sites to estimate employee counts and sales levels.Rutberg & Co. supplied the start-up investment data.“Scoping the depth and breadth of our emerging sectors is critical to attractinginvestors, entrepreneurs, and highly skilled workers to Massachusetts,” said TomHoprcroft, president and CEO of MassTLC. “This research makes it clear that GreaterBoston is among the best places in the world to start and grow a mobile business.”The following is the list of companies identified in the study.1st  Works         AisleBuyer           Atlantic  Tele-­‐network      211me           Akamai           Audissey  Guides      3  B  Communications     Allfocus           Authentic  Mobile      Abhav           Ambient  Devices       Autocell  Laboratories      Accessplus  Communications     Ambient  Rings         Avaya          Acme  Packet       American  Tower         AvidMobile          AdelaVoice           Anam  Mobile       Axerra  Networks      Adme           Ankota           Ayantek          Adva  Mobile       Antenna  Software       Aylus  Networks      Aerva           Apperian           Azuki  Systems      Aes-­‐intellinet           Apple           Basho  Technologies      Airpath  Wireless       Appswell           Beatbox  Pad        Airprint  Networks       Ascendent  Systems       bni  video      Airvana           Ascio  Wireless       Beechwoods  Software,  Inc.    Airwide  Solutions       AT&T           Bellhawk  Systems  Corp
