MOBIS won the gold prize at the 2009 Corporate Innovation Awards, an event held jointly on December 1 by the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) and the JoongAng Daily and sponsored by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE). The award is significant because this means MOBIS innovation has been recognized publically despite a mere three year effort.
MOBIS has chosen 26 innovation tasks over the last year, so that the company can monitor its progress against these tasks to reduce unnecessary expenditures and create a new income business model. This award will be able to boost the innovation activities at MOBIS in the future.
The Corporate Innovation Awards is the most prestigious management innovation award given by the Korean government. The Award seeks to find innovative management cases and recognize companies and people that have created the most remarkable innovation results, ultimately boosting the overall competence of companies in Korea.
Since its inception in 1994, it has reached its 16th anniversary this year.
