Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
The University of Pennsylvania has announced a new competition called, “AppitUP,” that will help students, faculty members, and employees bring their mobile application ideas to life by connecting participants with the software development companies and funding opportunities.
Kanda Software, a leading software development company with extensive expertise in mobile application development will help AppitUP finalists build a working prototype of their mobile application, which they will later present to venture capital firms to seek funding.
The top 10 rated mobile app ideas will be presented in front of the VC and software development partner panel with Kanda Software represented among them. The most innovative and creative ideas will work with Kanda’s team of developers to build a prototype of the mobile application. The top 5 finalists will get a chance to turn their idea into a real business.
Explaining her reason for choosing to with Kanda, Karina Sotnik, Program Director at AppitUP said, "Ever since the conception of the AppItUP Challenge, we knew that we needed to partner with the industry leaders in app development for the program to be successful. Students are great at creating projects, but need some help in bringing them to market. We are aiming at creating successful companies and for that we need professionals who are the best in their field.”
AppItUP is a new mobile application idea challenge designed to gather the best app ideas from the Penn community and connect them with the funding and technical expertise necessary to make them a reality. AppITUP is a brainchild of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Technology Transfer and UPstart program.
