The App Idea Awards is a competition where people compete to get their app idea made for free. No equity is taken and all the intellectual property remains yours.

 
 

Who Should Apply?

Anyone over the age of 18 who has a good idea for an app or an app in early stage of development (less than 1,000 users), including students, developers, designers, product managers, and more. You can be a team of ten or a team of one. 

 

 

How Will It Be Judged?

Applications will be judged based on the entrepreneurial vision, user flow and design, monetization strategy, and the team's general ability to execute the app's proposed business plan. We like good ideas...but we prefer those that can also generate revenue and scale.  

 

Where & When?

Applications closed on March 31st. The final event will feature 6 app entrepreneurs pitching to some of the top venture capitalists in the country. The finals will take place in New York City on May 3rd, 2016 from 6 p.m.- 9 p.m. ET at General Assembly. Sign-up today!

Why Are We Holding This Competition?


We believe in a mobile future

To seek out and reward excellence in the mobile community. 

 

We’re not looking for just any app idea. Rather, we’re seeking out app ideas that have strong user-experiences, are able to be executed and are supported by a solid business model. We want to highlight and reward app based business models that can both generate revenue and scale.   

This competition will allow us (and you) to watch an app idea turn into a successful app based business. We’re pretty excited about that. Although only one team will walk away with the grand prize - we believe that the App Idea Awards is more than just that. It's also an educational experience for all. Along the way, we hope that we can teach everyone a thing or two about the app creation process.

In fact, we've made it our duty to do so.
