For startups, raising capital and getting much-needed industry attention can be one of the biggest hurdles to overcome. But one competition is making it easier for startups to win cash and promote their business

The Mobileys

Mobile Future officially kicked-off The Mobileys, their annual competition that recognizes innovative mobile apps, services or products. While there’s no fee to enter, startups must complete an online application, available on the Mobileys site. Apply before the competition closes on September 26th.

How to Qualify

Who exactly qualifies for this competition? Applicants to The Mobileys must be either an individual or at least affiliated with a U.S. startup that has either launched a mobile product, service or app, or is within six months of launching. The products themselves should be a “creative game changer” that uses mobile in new ways to create a positive impact on users’ lives. The winners will be announced in November 2016.

What You Win

The first place prize lands the winner with $10,000. Second place follows at $5,000, and third place and people’s choice rounding out at $2,500 each.

A competition of this kind is especially needed, not just to spotlight the work done by emerging entrepreneurs. The competition’s judges are prominent voices in tech, funding, and key sectors of the economy.

If you’re an entrepreneur with a mobile product that will innovate and make the world a better place, then this competition is for you. Apply today!
