It has been quite a successful year for former winners of TNW Startup competitions. To give you an idea: Google recently completed a $1.3 billion deal to acquire social mapping firm Waze — a Startup Rally contestant back in 2007. SaferTaxi raised $3.2 million this year and Getninjas raised $3 million after winning a TNW Startup Award in Latin America.
The first edition of the TNW USA Conference is fast approaching and we’re looking for mobile innovators to take the stage during the Mobile Startup Rally.
With this challenge we hope to find the next mobile leaders and offer them a platform to present themselves in front of industry professionals, journalists, VCs and potential business partners. Welcome to PR heaven!
How can you take part?
Startups can apply until Friday the July 26th. After the submission round, the video round and interview round, the expert jury will select the 15 best mobile startups that will get the chance to pitch on main stage. Another five lucky folks will be selected out of all the startups that have a demo desk or startup table at the event.
The Mobile Startup Rally is co-hosted by our friends from Adyen. Roelant Prins, Chief Commerce Officer of Adyen, says:
“Businesses of tomorrow need innovative, new payment solutions to help them expand their customer bases internationally and capture a greater share of global revenue. As proud partner of TNW Startup Rally, Adyen is delighted to share and discuss today’s modern payment solutions and strategies that will successfully propel participating startups towards their monetization goals.”
The TNW USA curtains open in New York City on October 1-2, 2013.
See you there!
