Raleigh startup MobiCompete is turning smartphones into game controllers, part of its strategy to create more effective mobile marketing platforms.

"Brand sponsors spend billions at live events, media channels and entertainment merchants to engage with customers with difficulty engaging them in real time, activating them to take action and minimal analytics to measure effectiveness of money spent. This is a universal issue across brands no matter the venue or channel," says CEO Chris Angel.

"We are utilizing a unique method of contests and games using the ubiquitous smartphone to solve this problem that greatly exceeds their minimal expectations and returns today. The market for this application is international in scope across multiple verticals."

The company will be making its business case to potential investors at the CED Tech Venture Conference in Raleigh on Sept. 19-20.
