Mobile startups: This is your chance to showcase your company, product or solution to 700 mobile executives, leaders, IT decision makers, venture capitalists, and press.
We’re inviting ten finalists to present their innovative mobile app or product live on stage at MobileBeat 2013. Our team of judges — made up of industry experts, venture capitalists, and corporate executives — will provide feedback, recap the highlights, and determine the winner.
This year’s focus will be on how your company embodies, enables, or amplifies a killer “Mobile Experience.”
The ten finalists will be selected as follows:
1) Early stage companies (late seed stage to Series A):
Five companies will be selected that have received a range of $500K to $3 million in seed or early Series A funding. If you are a startup or a company that has received less than $3 million in funding, you may apply. We will provide you with a mandatory “bootcamp,” pitch mentoring process where experts will help you to hone your pitch. We will also accept applications where companies have minimally viable product that is in a pilot or a beta but have not launched on a large scale yet.
2) Mid Stage Companies (Series A to Series B funding):
Five companies will be selected that have at least Series A or B funding (have received more than $3M in funding including your first or second venture round). You have a product on the market with a defined customer base and paying customers or pilots. You have a defined sales cycle and pipeline. You are looking to expand your executive, tech or sales team and need to do another raise for expansion.
Application Guidelines and Criteria:
All applications must be received no later than June 7th, 2013, at 5pm PST.
It’s optional to submit a short video (2- 5 minutes in length) telling us more about your company or product. The video should not be an elaborate production. We suggest that either the entrepreneur or executive talk about their company/product or solution or provide a short demo of the product with screen shots. Please be concise and clear in the video.
A person from your company (ideally the person in the video) must be available to pitch live on stage at MobileBeat 2013. You must pay for your own airline ticket and lodging to come to the event but if you are a finalist we will comp your event ticket.
We’ll be announcing the Showdown prizes in the coming weeks.
