Do you have an idea for a mobile app? Are you willing to see your idea through and actually launch a new app? The University of Minnesota App Challenge is your opportunity to do just that, and have the opportunity to win big prizes.
How it works
If you have an idea for an app, we want to hear it.
Pitch your idea to us, and we will select five apps to compete in the challenge. If yours is one of the five chosen, you will receive guidance and financial help to bring your app from concept to reality. Don't have the programing skills? Gather a team! Have the vision and the skills? Give it a go yourself!
Remember, all you need is an idea. We'll help you take care of the rest.
The winning team will receive funding to attend a major industry conference such as Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) or Google I/O.
We'll help get you started. Join us from 5:00-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, in 101 Walter Library. We'll provide free pizza, describe what we expect from your apps, and share tips on how to effectively pitch your idea. Coordinate campus students can attend via UMConnect.
