Here’s a great opportunity for all Pinoy web applications developer to not only win a whooping $100,000 ($50,000 in cold cash) and $50,000 credit toward Amazon Web Service. Amazon Web Service is conducting the AWS Start-Up Challenge, open to all developers, entrepreneurs and existing start-ups.
The AWS Start-Up Challenge promises big opportunities for chosen finalists topped by a free ticket to Amazon.com office where they will present their entries to the AWS contest’ panel of judges. I’m guessing that this is an all expense paid trip. So, you not only get the chance to have a crack on winning the prize pot but you also get an instant trip to Seattle. How’s that for an incentive?
But wait, there’s more:
For the Final Round, AWS will fly the finalists to Amazon Headquarters in Seattle to present their idea to the judges’ panel. That evening, the finalists will pitch their business to VCs, mingle with industry leaders and Amazon executives, and be featured at the AWS Start-Up Challenge Awards Dinner, where the grand prize winner will be announced.
Five finalist will be chosen and judged based on originality and creativity of the idea, likelihood of long-term success, how well it addresses a need in the marketplace, and implementation of pay-as-you-use Amazon Web Services.
More details, official rules, submission form and other important information can be found at the Amazon Web Services site.
Pinoy developers show them how talented you are. Join the challenge and bring home that prize pot! I would love to join but unfortunately it is out of my league already.
