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 5,000 monthly active users), including students, developers, designers, product managers, grandmothers, 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 will open on Tuesday, January 3rd 2017. Join us for the Launch Party on March 1st at General Assembly. The application closes on April 24th, 2017 at midnight. The finals will take place in New York City on June 7th. Sign up for any news or updates along the way.
