Hong Kong-based Green Tomato is feeding the city’s seemingly insatiable appetite for mobile devices, having launched more than 80 applications for the iPhone and iPad since 2009. The developer is behind apps for Pizza Hut, the newspaper Apple Daily and Hong Kong Disneyland. Established in 2003 as a mobile-solutions consultancy, in 2007 Green Tomato was named one of Red Herring magazine’s 100 top private technology companies world-wide. In addition to its 80 mobile applications, the company has created 150 mobile websites that it says reach around three million subscribers in all.
Business started off locally, says chief executive Sunny Kok, but has expanded globally—with projects that include the world-wide app for car maker BMW. Green Tomato now has offices in Singapore and Qatar, and Mr. Kok wants to prove Asia’s gift for innovation around the world.
“People think that China can only copy something,” he says. Mr. Kok and marketing communications officer Jacqueline Chong talked to the Wall Street Journal about the future of mobile technology in Hong Kong and beyond.
