Do you have an innovative app idea? If so, entrepreneurs, startup and developers who use build on Windows 8 tablets, laptop and PCs are encouraged to register for The Windows Startup Challenge by the January 29, 2013 deadline! Only 1 week left to apply!
So what do you get if you win?
Up for grabs is the chance to launch your startup on stage at DEMO Mobile on April 17, 2013 and gain immediate visibility to top press outlets, seed and VC companies in attendance. Also, if you qualify, you are eligible to win scholarship money. To be eligible for scholarships, participants need to register before January 29, 2013 and submit a 2-minute app demo video or relevant screen shots.
The challenge will test your startup’s ability to prototype a Windows Store app, rapidly iterate to design and bring your app to life. Judging will consist of two rounds. The first will conclude on February 5, where prototype entries will be judged. From there a minimum of 20 teams will enter the second round, known as the app design and development round. During this round the top 20 teams will receive an engineer and design resource to help support the team for round two.
The top 5 teams from round two will receive their own marketing package which includes banners, marketing and PR support. One grand prize winning team will receive a trip for two to San Francisco to present and launch their company at DEMO Mobile.
