Caroline Lewko, Founder and CEO, WIP, named to Top 10 Women in Wireless

caroline-pictureHere at WIP, we are thrilled that our Founder and CEO, Caroline Lewko, has been named as one of the top 10 Women in Wireless by FierceWireless.

Fierce Wireless selected the top 10 for their accomplishments, their technical savvy, their leadership-and perhaps most importantly, their influence on the industry. As stated in their publication “These are the women who you often see speaking at industry events, working on various committees or negotiating tough deals. From entrepreneurs who have turned their passions into successful ventures to savvy executives who are climbing the corporate ladder in traditionally male-dominated firms, these are the women that the industry should keep an eye on in 2009 and beyond.”

Caroline is in great company on the Top 10 Women in Wireless list. She is joined by the following dynamic women: Cathy Avgiris, Comcast; Jill Braff, Glu Mobile; Venetia Espinoza, T- Mobile; Peggy Johnson, Qualcomm; Selino Lo, Ruckus Wireless; Kelly Owens St. Julian, Boost Mobile; Viviane Reding, European commissioner for Information Society and Media; Cher Wang, Co-founder and chairperson of HTC; and Christy Wyatt, Motorola.

Many of you know Caroline as the “connector”. In fact, she describes herself as a consummate ‘connector’ with a passion for wireless! Active in the wireless/telecom industry since 1995, she has been a coder, funder, business developer and entrepreneur. She is sought out by investors and C level executives for insights, contacts and advice; and has advised and funded hundreds of companies.

If you haven’t met Caroline yet, you probably will-very soon. She spends much of her time traveling around the world, attending conferences and doing what she does best-bringing together various industry players.

At WIP, we aim to bring developers together with the rest of the wireless ecosystem to help shorten development times and foster innovation. We give emerging wireless companies an extra edge in getting products and services to market with global partnerships, events like WIPJam Sessions; Go to Market programs and websites like the WIPwiki (a membership and resource tool). WIP partners with wireless organizations and Developer Programs around the world. According to FierceWireless, “At a time when mobile developers are in high demand, an organization such as WIP is providing a tremendous service to the developer community.” More information about Caroline and WIP is available on our website.

It is interesting to note that Caroline is the only woman on the list who Tweets.

Mobile Jam Session - Save the Date!

Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at Torre Mapfre in Barcelona

Infused with the spirit of the early days of Jazz, the Mobile Jam Session is a day to inspire new ideas and innovate solutions to existing challenges. The purpose is focused, but the agenda is improvised along the way.

Caroline Lewko of the Wireless Industry Partnership (WIP) and Rudy De Waele of dotopen / mTrends are ‘jazzed’ about working together to bring you the first of many Mobile Jam Sessions. We are passionate about fostering a free environment for collaborative creation among all the different players in the value chain. We know streamlining communication will make it easier for our young companies to innovate and get to market faster and smarter.

It all starts as we open up the mobile ecosystem and connect experienced and talented developers, with industry experts and decision makers. It’s no secret that the industry needs the emerging companies to lead with innovation, to leverage resources and to help change the game. With the right beat, let’s get ready to listen!

Most importantly this event is driven by developers – what you want to hear, who you want to talk to, what you want to say….. But of course we want to hear from the big companies and experts too - so what’s the hot topic for you? Let’s us know by adding your name and topic to Invitation List. New tunes often come from unlikely associations, so… Jam on!

The event is free of charge for all participants, coffee breaks, lunch and networking cocktail included. We’re looking for passionate, exciting and talented developers. We have confirmed participations from Telefonica, Vodafone Group, Telecom Italia, Nokia, Sun Microsystems, Yahoo!, Mystrands, Mobile Distillery, Trutap, Kimia, …

Be prepared to be an active participant in the session.

The event is hosted in the new MyStrands Barcelona offices in the Torre Mapfre at the Villa Olympica. MyStrands generously offers us the superb 350 square meter space on the 20th Floor of the building with a breathtaking view on all Barcelona, the city, the Olympic port and its beaches.
