The excitement has already started for Apps World 2015 as we officially announce that we (that is The Mobile Academy along with Mobile Monday London) will be returning to host a Startup Village on 18th and 19th November. We will also host a pop up tea party at 3.30pm on the 18th.
It’s an amazing opportunity to get feedback, make connections and grab some attention. So if you are a product or company less than 2 years old; have something demo-able and want to use the 18th and 19th November to the full, make your pitch for a free stand here: http://bit.ly/1Pjvmtv
If you’re in any doubt as to whether to apply for a free stand have a look at the stories below from our alumni who won stands last year:
Chris Michael joined our first course (The Mobile Academy) in 2012 and has been an active member of the community ever since – giving advice to later cohorts and taking the stage at Mobile Monday Demo Nights. We are really excited to let you know that he has now secured funding for Swytch from Neil Hutchinson (Neon Adventures), Yannick Roux (EC1 Capital), James Hilton (CEO of M&C Saatchi Mobile) amongst others with the service launching in October 2015. He recounts his experience from winning a stand in our Village at Apps World last year:
“…Over the two days at Apps World we were able to showcase a very early version of the Swytch app to hundreds of people and get their feedback on the service. This was invaluable to us as we were getting first hand contact with potential users at a time where we could take action and build a service that users really wanted. We did get some press exposure too as an interesting upcoming service…”
Gary McDonagh came to The Mobile Academy in 2014 and has told us what a great experience it was for him too and his Startup “Double”. He met journalist Eric Auchard, chief tech correspondent for EMEA at Reuters who wrote about them here: http://reut.rs/1isIykW. He also met the Incubus London team and got on to their pre-accelerator programme as well as Microsoft Ventures where they got to the final.
