Software Development Contest

Open to: Young software engineers from European or North American university and young people who are not software engineers but have an idea for making one.
Prize: 12,500 Euro, three months of office space, six mentoring sessions and introductions to seed an venture-capital investors. 

Lean Investments invites talented software engineers and young persons with great idea for a web or mobile app that are from European or North American universities to enter the Lean Investments Summer 2012 App Challenge. Contestants will build an application or service – for iPhone, the web or Android individually or in a team. Unlike other business-plan or pitch competition, where the winner is the person with the best slides or the most persuasive presentation this competition is about building something – a simple and quick prototype – that actually works and is useful. Contestants who plan to return to full-time education after the summer can still enter. In case anyone of them wins, they can work on their app part-time while Lean Investments assemble a team of people to help them take it forward.

Deadline: 15 July 2012
