"The Open Mobile Summit is bringing together some of the most prominent thought leaders and talented entrepreneurs in the mobile industry, making it an ideal venue to honor this distinguished group of VCs," said John Occhipinti, Chair of the ESVCA and Partner at Relay Ventures.

"We are very pleased to have this select group of early stage investors recognized at our annual event for their contribution to the mobile industry and support of entrepreneurs that are driving innovation in this market."
