CEO, Paul Swaddle, invited to participate in the UK China Science Healthtech Open Innovation Workshops

London – 10th November, 2014 - Pocket App, the UK’s largest independent app developer, is proud to announce that it has moved to larger premises in Whitfield Street, Soho as it grows in size and stature both here in the UK and in its offices in Mumbai, India.

Pocket App, which was founded just three years ago in 2011, has seen its business grow three-fold in the past 12 months alone. It’s relocation to new offices in London will give the organisation plenty of room to expand as it hires new mobile app developers and graphic design talent to meet an ever-increasing demand for innovative mobile apps. Pocket App has also increased the number of employees in its offices in India from 55 to 90.

Paul Swaddle, CEO, Pocket App comments: “As we continue to expand and grow our business this will enhance our ability to deliver the wide range of mobile services and solutions that we offer. Moving to larger premises in London also presents us with the opportunity to grow our team as we continue to invest in the business and add specialist skills to ensure that we cover all aspects of mobile.”

The mobile app market is exploding with IDC’s mobile phone forecast predicting that total sales of smartphones will reach 1.2 billion units before the end of the year, a 23.1 percent increase over 2013. With the use of mobile devices now intrinsically linked to everyday life, Pocket App is dealing with increasing demand to build new apps for smartphones, tablets and other devices.

In particular, Pocket App has built a number of apps for the m-Health market and as a result Founder and CEO Paul Swaddle has been invited to participate in the UK China Science Healthtech Open Innovation Workshops which are running for one week from 17th November 2014. 12 UK companies have been selected to work alongside 12 Chinese participants from academia and industry to share ideas and expertise and collaborate through a series of open innovation workshops. Those projects that are deemed to deliver joint new technology and IP of value to the Chinese health industry will receive further funding.

The UK-China Science Healthtech Open Innovation Programme grew out of the highly successful Bradford China Bridges programme, which has been running for over seven years. During this time the team has developed formal links with over 50 Chinese institutions and secured over £15m of collaborative funding in China and in the UK.
