One of the best parts of the mobileX conference is the pitch contest where startup companies (and in many cases, just startup ideas) are pitched to a panel of experts. The panel will give feedback and the crowd will vote via their phones (of course) and determine the winner - who will receive an iPod touch!
We don't care how far along the idea/company is as long as you're "new". You could have just thought of the idea yesterday or be in your second year of business (no companies older than 3 years...we feel this is about as old as you can be and still call yourself a "startup" especially in the mobile web business). We do care about your ability to talk about it compellingly, intelligently, and succinctly. You'll have 5 minutes to pitch, 3 minutes for Q&A from the judges & perhaps the crowd if there's time. Powerpoint presentations and demos are welcome but not necessary. We will pick no more than 5 applicants and the winner will receive an iPod touch.
Best of luck and thanks for applying!
