£20k is up for grabs for budding entrepreneur with an app idea
The Belfast Telegraph has teamed up with digital agency Origin Partners to give one forward-looking reader the chance to realise their dreams of becoming the next Steve Jobs or even Mark Zuckerberg.
The free-to-enter App for Life competition which has been launched, is putting up £20,000 worth of development support to translate the very best concept into a real-life application that can be sold across the world.
The top three entries will also each win a tablet computer with an iPad and two Nexus 7 units up for grabs.
Sam McIlveen, digital publisher at the Belfast Telegraph said he expected excellent entries given Northern Ireland's entrepreneurial heritage.
“This region has a legacy of developing cutting-edge innovations that have shaken the world,” he said.
Jerry Staple, operations director at Origin Partners said: “Apps are becoming increasingly important in all walks of life.
“But they don't have to be complicated to be brilliant.”
App for Life runs until October 12. Winners will be announced at the end of October.
