Microsoft, Startup Weekend and DEMO recently announced the Windows Startup Challenge, a global contest offering developers, designers and entrepreneurs a chance to accelerate their Windows app from prototype to development to launch.
Winners will get publicity, expert help, and connections to investors as well as a free trip to San Francisco to launch their app at DEMO Mobile 2013 in front of top-tier investors, VCs, and press.
Applicants from across the globe must submit a 2 minute video or presentation showing off their Windows app prototype before January 29th, 2013.
There are 2 rounds to the contest, the first will have applicants upload a prototype app and garner votes and judges’ support and the next will pair contestants with technical and design experts to fully flesh out their creation.
