The Mobile World Congress is a mega-conference focused on the mobile industry, with over 94,000 attendees last year. With this year’s conference in Barcelona expected to beat that tally, we ran the company exhibitor list through the CB Insights database (thanks to our Bulk Search tool) to help target the right companies and people.
We matched more 566 companies in our database, and made a public list on our platform of companies you should be speaking to. We also used filtering and our Mosaic algorithm, which tracks the momentum of private companies, to identify some high-flyers attending the conference. We limited our list to companies that have raised less than $25M in financing.
If you want to see the full list of companies, sign up for a free trial and search “Mobile World Congress 2016” in our company lists.
The list is also available in Excel form under the “Research” tab in Analytics & Research. You’ll be able to see each companies performance, funding, and investors among other important information.
