London, United Kingdom – 10 August 2017 – ANDi Games Ltd was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Startup of the Year - Consumer Products Industries category in The 14 th Annual International Business Awards earlier this week.

All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small - are eligible to submit nominations. The 2017 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain on 21 October. 

A record total of more than 3,900 nominations from organisations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Startup of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.

ANDi; available on Android and coming soon to iOS and VR platforms is a mobile gaming hub, designed to help users find the mobile games for them on any store, on any platform. The app automatically recommends games based on previous downloads and individual preferences. It gives users access to a wealth of rewards and discounts, streaming opportunities, and a community of likeminded gamers worldwide. Equally, ANDi is a gift to any mobile game developer, providing them with the medium to communicate with gamers face-to-face to understand their needs. It presents developers with a new platform to advertise their games on a level playing field, right alongside the biggest apps, created by the biggest developers.

No more will the biggest fish dominate the ocean, only the largest game developers gaining access to ‘recommended’ lists, and the eyes of disgruntled customers, scrolling through infinite pages of apps they'll download, and most likely delete. With ANDi, no game goes unseen, no customer gets forgotten. ANDi works, and plays, for everyone

“This is a fantastic achievement for the entire team and we are thrilled that the judges recognised the potential in what we are doing and hoping to achieve. Already ANDi is attracting the attention and support of some notable figures across the industry including Ido Hochman; Head of Corporate Strategy at MiniClip, Deborah Papiernik; Senior Vice President for New Business Development, Technology and Strategic Alliances at Ubisoft and Dean Johnson; Head of Innovation at Brandwidth, amongst others. This award helps to validate the work we are doing together.” – Ben Woolf; Co-founder & CEO of ANDi Games Ltd.

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries.

“The IBA judges from across the world were highly impressed with the nominations they reviewed this year. With the level of achievement documented in the nominations from 60 nations, the Stevie Awards are proud to honor organizations that demonstrate a high level of achievement in a variety of industries” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to sharing many of these stories with people around the world over the coming months, through the Stevie Awards blog and social media channels, with the hope to inspire others to high achievement.”
