Throughout September 2014 we received an outstanding 425 app entries into the Big App competition from entrepreneurs in 27 countries across Europe.
The Facebook backed competition was judged by a panel of app experts including two senior Facebook executives, the youngest person ever to achieve 1 million app downloads via the AppStore and the author of ‘How to Build a Billion Dollar App’.
Our panel of judges met the top 50 finalists for a day of speed interviews at Facebook London HQ. The Top 10 then attended a grand final where they pitched their app businesses to our team.
After due diligence, two out of the three winners received a share of £200,000 of seed investment raised via 321 individuals on the Seedrs crowdfunding platform. Winners are now being mentored by Worth Capital.
