BongoHive is proud to open applications for the Windows Application Acceleration Camp (WAAC). The top 3 applications will be submitted to AppCampus, a prestigious accelerator in Finland. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to attend AppCademy, a two week intensive accelerator camp run by AppCampus. Candidates stand a chance to receive awards varying from 20.000, 50.000 to 70.000 Euros, depending on the complexity of the app.
WAAC is an initiative designed to help talented teams launch a successful mobile app or mobile game through the AppCampus program. Participants will be given the technical, business and financial support to help them build a great app for the Windows Phone Store.
To qualify for a WAAC event, your team must possess the following minimum set of skills:
i. Design. To build a great app, you need to be able to carefully plan the user experience and every detail of the interface.
ii. Mobile Development. You need someone who knows how to develop for Windows Phone 8/Windows 8.
iii. Business and marketing. We want to help you to build a business, not only an application. The team needs someone who can design a business model and implement a marketing campaign.
