San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
The organizers of DEMO Mobile, a launch event exclusively focused on the best new mobile technologies based on design, innovation and market potential, have announced WinDemoMobile.com, a tech startup pitch contest which will be held at DEMO Mobile. Powered by viral marketing platform Fandrop, WinDemoMobile.com will allow startups to pitch their companies in “30 seconds or less,” then let fans vote for their favorite startups in different categories. The contest will run from from April 18th to April 24th. Voters will be able to see the most trending startups in a real-time dashboard.
“Mobile is one of the hottest technology trends, with millions of computing devices being developed to keep you connected night and day” said Erick Schonfeld, DEMO Executive Producer. “This competition and platform will give an opportunities for all the startups at DEMO Mobile to promote themselves to a large audience.”
How It Works:
Entrepreneurs pitch their startup on camera to the official WinDemoMobile team.
After the video of their pitch is posted, startups can promote their link on Fandrop to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and G+. Those with the most votes and “shares” will win. Fandrop also provides analytics for startups entered in the competition. At WinDemoMobile.com, voters will be able to see a startup’s interview answers, timed under a stopwatch at 30-second intervals.
“The format of the competition and the platform will allow all of the best startups to get their fair share of attention from those at the conference and for those sitting at home who are curious about who is getting the most buzz at Demo Mobile,” said Ken Zi Wang, Fandrop Co-Founder & CEO. “Watching the entrepreneur interview under a stopwatch will be also be fun and ensure that voters won’t have to sit through long videos.”
Startups will compete in two categories: DEMO Mobile Crowd Favorite and Demo Influencers. The prizes include domestic round trip airline tickets on American Airlines, tickets to the DEMO fall conference, and meeting with top SV influencers. The competition runs from April 18 to 24. Winners will be announced on April 26th.
