The Windows Startup Challenge is Calling Your Name

| MSNE Staff


Calling all app developers, mobile start-ups and tech geeks! There’s a contest you need to enter because you might win. And if you win, you’re going to be so happy. I mean sooooo happy.


The Windows Startup Challenge, brought to you by Windows, Startup Weekend and DEMO Mobile, invites you to develop an app to run on Windows 8 tablets, laptops and PCs. Your app is not required to run on Windows Phone, but we will be thrilled if it does.  It’s okay if your app already exist in the iOS Apple Store, Google Play or other platforms. As long as it does not exist in the Windows Store (yet), then it’s an eligible candidate.


You can enter alone or as a team. All entries must be submitted by January 29th, 11:59pm GMT.  Your entry can be as simple as an idea and you can submit said idea with a video, slideshare presentation, screen shots or anything else that meets the judging criteria.


Once you’ve submitted your idea, share it with the world.  You have until February 5th to get the public’s opinion. If the public votes for your idea, you’re likely to be one of the 20 teams moving to the next round.  Those 20 teams will receive FREE support from real-life Windows engineers and designers to help take your idea to the next level.  After that, 5 teams will get a marketing package to launch their apps: everything from banners to content to PR support. Finally, one lucky team will send 2 members to the DEMO Mobile Conference in San Francisco on April 17th, 2013. This includes roundtrip airfare, 3 nights’ accommodations and the chance to present your idea at the conference to thousands of media outlets, investors, bloggers and industry influencers.


Whoa, this sounds awesome. I know you’ve got what it takes, so what are you waiting for? Get in this contest, now. Good luck!
