Ever felt like you had a really good idea for an app that could change people’s lives and make the world a better place? Perhaps the only thing stopping you from taking action was you didn’t know where to start, or thought no one else would be interested? Well, hear that sound? That is opportunity knocking on your door.
We are asking people to design, implement and showcase new ideas for a mobile application that could benefit society and help to build a brighter future. After the registration closes there will be a pre-selection amongst the candidate teams.
Best apps will be rewarded with great prizes. The overall winning app of the hackathon will be enrolled into the Aalto App Campus Program. This provides monetary support as well as mentoring and assistance to transform their winning idea into a professional and high quality app. The winner needs to fulfill Aalto App Campus criteria. In addition to this, there will be other great prizes as well.
In case you have lack of ideas, please, visit the “Design and Develop for People and Planet” challenge in IdeasProject to see whether any of those ideas would suit you.
Participate in any of the three 24hr Hackathons and develop apps for S40 (e.g Nokia Asha phones) and Windows Phone (e.g. Nokia Lumia phones).
For each Hackathon:

- The winner would be awarded one Nokia Lumia 920.
