The Big App Fund The Retail Foundation Fund

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.
