The Mobile Premier Awards has been showcasing mobile talent since the beginning, we talked about Waze earlier and we will continue to write about the interesting companies that have participated at this event. Making it one of the “must-attend” events during the Mobile World Congress week in Barcelona.

Winning awards is very important for a start-up because it helps position you in the industry and gain recognition and attention. The Mobile Premier Awards is a great initiative to raise your profile and meet the right people to take your business to the next level. Claudia Poepperl, CEO of Adaffix.

In this post we feature Adaffix, the winner for Best Startup in Female Entrepreneurship in the MPA’s of 2010. Check out the following milestones that Adaffix has achieved after winning the MPA award in 2010.

What makes this company special is that it integrates relevant information of the caller or messages that your mobile phone gets, connecting to your social graph and also suggesting businesses that are relevant to you. It supports several languages and it is an unobtrusive app.

  • During the MPA’s they launched in Germany and Austria. Since then they have launched their app in several markets.
