Bedford, NH – Ric Pratte, President and CEO of JitterGram, Just-in-Time Promotions & Notifications, has been selected to speak on behalf of the company’s unique text messaging capabilities at the Dow Jones Wireless Innovations 2009, The Next Evolution of Wireless and Mobility.

The event will convene senior corporate executives, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs to showcase technologies in development at 60 wireless start-ups and discuss the business challenges and opportunities start-ups and their investors are seeing. The conference will take place on March 17 and 18 at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay in Redwood City, CA.

At the Wireless Innovations event, JitterGram will showcase its Just-in-Time text messages, sent to customers and potential customers who want to receive special offers on their mobile phones when it counts the most.
