PixelPin picks up plaudit as winner of CEO Summit 2013

ceo_summitMobile startup PIxelPin has won the CEO Summit 2013 Award for Mobile Innovation in front of a panel of industry luminaries including Amazon, Dropbox and Telefónica Digital.

The company was one of seven selected mobile startups that were given three minutes to present and explain why their company was going to disrupt and transform the industry. PixelPin tackles the issue of mobile security with an innovative solution that replaces passwords with pictures.

The CEOs of MEF members from more than 20 countries then voted for the start-up which they believed was the most innovative and likely to succeed. The pitches covered a broad range of mobile content and commerce activities including social shopping, loyalty schemes, crowd-sourcing community action platform and a female-only dating app.

Every presenting company were entrants of the forthcoming Meffys 2013 awards that in November will take place in San Francisco for the first time.

“We recognise the global reach that MEF and the CEOs attending this event have, so to have been awarded the first prize today is a wild dream come true – I am very pleased to have won,” said Brian Taylor, CEO and Founder, PixelPin.
