8 reasons why MobileSparks 2016 should be on your calender


• India has over 1 billion mobile users, the majority of whom are set to become smartphone users by 2020

• 60% of internet subscribers in India use their mobile phones to surf the Web

• India will see an estimated 7.7 billion app downloads in 2016, making it the world’s fourth- largest app economy

To say that the mobile sector in India is seeing burgeoning growth would be an understatement. The numbers are already significant as evidenced above and one can only expect exponential growth going forward. The mobile phone is no longer just a communication device; people are using it for a multitude of other activities: as an ATM, a cab service, a travel agent, you name it, and there’s an app for it. So, if you are an entrepreneur or a startup, there really is no other space that’s buzzing with as many possibilities.

MobileSparks is YourStory’s annual conference centred on the mobile space and one of India’s biggest platforms for startups, entrepreneurs, and developers to showcase their products, services, and innovations, which they feel could be the next big thing. With four successful editions behind us, we are back with the 5th edition of MobileSparks to enable you to explore opportunities, meet peers, and discover much more about mobile-focussed solutions.
