Speaker bios:
Mark Jacobstein, Vice President of Product Management, Qualcomm iSkoot Technologies, Inc.

Qualcomm iSkoot works closely with mobile network operators, including AT&T, Verizon, O2, T-Mobile and Telefonica, as well as leading OEMs, to bring aggregated access to social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and more, within a single application to mobile handsets around the world. iSkoot mobilizes many of the Internet’s most popular services, like social networks, consumer email and IM in an intelligent manner that reduces data bandwidth usage on the network and saves battery life on phones.

Jacobstein served as CEO of iSkoot prior to its acquisition. Previously, he worked as executive vice president of the groundbreaking social mapping startup Loopt, Inc, and as the founding president of Digital Chocolate, a mobile gaming pioneer. Under Mark’s guidance the Digital Chocolate studios won numerous awards, including game developer of the year in 2005 and a Game of the Year “Meffy” for Towerbloxx, a title Mark designed.

Early in his career, Jacobstein served as founder and CEO of Small World Sports, the world’s first online fantasy sports business, which was acquired by Paul Allen’s The Sporting News in 2002. He was also the founder of Small World Software, one of the world’s first Internet agencies, which he sold to iXL in 1998. Jacobstein served as the senior vice president running business development for iXL’s New York office through its IPO in 1999. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Harvard University.
