Microforum International

Overview

Microforum International is a privately held company founded in 1984 and based in Toronto, Canada.

In the beginning the company focused its activities on the manufacture and assembly of storage devices and media replication on floppy disks. Later, the company expanded to the areas of packaging and corporate promotion.

Towards the end of the 80’s, the company gained a prominent role in the multimedia production area, particularly with the creation of video, audio and animations, and the publishing and distribution of multimedia products such as games and software utilities. As a result of its strength in the North American market, Microforum decided to become a publicly traded company, and launched a successful IPO in 1995.

A strong presence in the European market, and particularly in Italy, lead to the establishment of Microforum Italia, which only three years later managed to become one of the leading multimedia publishers and distributors in Italy, with a nation-wide distribution network.

With its history and knowledge of software development and distribution, the firm entered the promising mobile games and applications market at the end of 2002. In just two years, Microforum created a portfolio of over twenty-five so-called “J2ME” games and utilities that are currently sold worldwide under the Microforum brand.

Microforum’s distribution network includes leading mobile operators (such as Vodafone, Orange, O2, Telefonica, T-Mobile, Telia Sonera, SK Telecom, Hutchinson, Rogers, Telus, Virgin etc), mobile Internet portals, and content aggregators.
