Our Heritage: Great businesses are built on solid foundations
Mobile has created a compelling opportunity for retailers, venue operators and developers to personalize the engagement with their customers. Gimbal is consistently selected as the partner-of-choice by leading sports organizations, entertainment venues, retailers and application developers to provide the best mobile experiences.
Gimbal was born within Qualcomm Labs, an internal incubator of Qualcomm, a world leader in wireless technology. Qualcomm recognized that Gimbal needed the freedom to respond to customer needs within the rapidly evolving proximity ecosystem. As a result, in May of 2014, Gimbal was carved out as an independent business. Although Qualcomm continues to be Gimbal's largest single shareholder and remains committed to Gimbal's success, they no longer have controlling interest.
By selecting Gimbal; retailers, venue operators and developers can rely upon a strong technology built by Qualcomm, a proven leader in mobile, while benefitting from the market-driven development cycle and nibble decision-making process of a start-up.
