MoMo Sydney – Sept. 2nd – Focus on The App Economy

Despite there being over 900,000 apps in the Appstore and 700,000 in Google Play – suggesting the chances of individual success for the next flashlight app are rapidly diminishing – the global mobile app market is still growing incredibly strongly with Gartner predicting it set to triple from $24.5 billion in 2013 to $74 billion in 2016. The Financial Times estimates Apple alone has paid out over $10 billion to app developers since launching the Appstore (while also noting that the launch of iOS7 is set to “shake up” that economy).

In this special Mobile Monday Sydney AppEconomy event, we’ll be focusing on the growth potential of the global mobile app market – showcasing a couple of startups who are tackling the challenge of how to make apps successful in completely different ways.


Nic Wright, co-founder of AppInstruct, will argue that the proliferation of cloud based mobile support services mean that minimum viable products remain within reach of the most bootstrapped founder – enabling market validation and fundraising.

Nic will talk about what motivated him to develop a Course teaching people how to create an app, the start-up lessons he’s learned along the way and why you’ll want to send the next person who pitches an app idea to you, in their direction!

Patrick Visser, co-founder of The AppVillage – an app incubator and publisher for crowd sourced ideas – will also share their start-up story so far, from original idea to now and learnings on the way, and how their “3.8 apps” currently in the Appstore are doing and their plans for tackling the Android market next.

If time and audience permits, we’ll get together a solid panel for Q&A too.

Bring a Friend !

Promises to be a fascinating night of insights as well as a great way to meet people in the industry – so bring someone who you think would benefit, or just come along and debate whether $78 billion is still ‘just a flash in the pan’.

Speaker Bios

Nic Wright – Prior to building his own business, Nic worked for over ten years as a corporate and debt lawyer, in London, the Caribbean and Sydney, advising on many headline-making deals, including Westpac’s merger with St George Bank (Australia’s largest M&A transaction) in 2008.

Patrick Visser – a Senior digital creative with 12 years agency and publisher experience in web and mobile (Fairfax, nineMSN, Clemenger, TribalDDB, Pfizer, etc.). Over the span of his career Patrick has worked as designer, art director, creative director, strategist and consultant.

MoMo Sydney – July 1st – Regarding Responsive Design

Responsive design: is it shifting the focus away from mobile app development?

With companies and enterprises rushing to “mobilise” their web sites, is responsive design the best approach to get content on 2nd and 3rd screens?  Is this merely a tick-box exercise just to have mobile presence? Or is there still an argument to go into full development of native apps?

Kicking off the evening will be Ben Beath from Loud & Clear, all the way from Melbourne,  who will discuss the responsive design movement and present case studies on their works with AFL, Telstra Digital, etc.

Following that, join our esteemed panelists, together with Ben, as they share their experience in the area of mobile design and development:

  • Chris Paton from Vivant, the team behind Kaching and CommBank’s Property Guide iPhone app;
  • Mike Boyd from Alpha Salmon, the group that gave us TAB’s mobile betting app;
  • Geoff Sykes from Shodogg, leading the charge in connecting mobile devices with web-enabled screens
