London, UK – 22 nd August 2011TeePee Games, the rapidly growing discovery platform for social, smartphone and online Flash Games, is pleased to announce that it has been named by Mobile Entertainment as one of the Top 50 Mobile Innovators in the UK.

Sponsored by O2 BlueVia and supported by Frog Capital, IMR Executive and Reynolds Porter Chamberlain, the Top 50 Mobile Innovators project aims to identify the most dynamic privately-owned UK registered companies that work within the mobile space. With the assistance of VCs, analysts, entrepreneurs and a number of industry experts, ME assembled a list of companies that have been demonstrating innovation in areas spanning gaming, loyalty, ticketing, payments, advertising, education and gifting.

Tim Green, executive editor of ME, said: "Britain has always been home to inventors and entrepreneurs. Today, as we enter the information revolution, that entrepreneurial spirit is clearly to be found in the mobile space.” He adds, "It's very gratifying to provide a showcase of the best of UK mobile, and I congratulate all those who made the 50."

TeePee Games is a games discovery platform that provides users with personalised game recommendations tailored to their interests and online behaviours.  It has already built up an extensive directory of titles, with more than 150 Android, 400 Facebook and 2,500 online flash games currently available for discovery.

Tony Pearce, CEO and co-founder of TeePee Games comments, “It’s a great honour for TeePee Games to have been recognised as one of the top 50 mobile innovators in the UK. We saw a gap in the market to provide a service that would help individuals find great games while also helping companies to achieve the recognition that their titles deserve. We’ve had great success with our games discovery platform, and just like how Facebook and Twitter have become a part of many individuals’ day to day routines, TeePee Games has fast become an important daily activity for gamers.”

He adds, “ TeePee Games has only scratched the surface of the mobile sector. We have plans to extend our service beyond Android and onto additional platforms like iPhone and Blackberry.”

Winners of the Top 50 Mobile Innovators list will celebrate their success at a special reception to be held at the 24 London bar on 5 th September 2011.
