With 10 Business Lounges happening throughout Europe this year, Apps for Europe+Apps for EuropeLees hier onze Nederlandstalige projectpagina over Apps for trying to find the best open data applications and startups that Europe has to offer. Apps for Europe invites all developers, startups and companies that use open data as a recourse to join the competition and win a spot at the International Business Lounge @ Future Everything in February 2015.

Last year’s winner has shown the potential of using open data to enhance their company and expand their services. Since the international Business Lounge at Future Everything last year they were able to reach new cities and raise almost 140.000,- in crowdfunding. A true success story!

Over the past years many local, regional and national app competitions in Europe have been organized to stimulate developers and companies to build new applications with open data. Apps for Europe has taken it to the next level. By adding Business Lounges to local events Apps for Europe introduces the world of open data development to that of investors, accelerators, incubators and more.

Thijs GitmansEnter your app and win 5,000 euro!, Peak Capital: “The Business Lounge in Amsterdam had a professional and personal approach. I am invited to this kind of meetings often, and the trigger to actually go or cancel last minute 99% of the time has to do with proper, timely and personal communication.”

The Apps for Europe competitions will run from 1 September to 31 December 2014, with the final at Future Everything in Manchester, UK, on 26-27 February 2015.
