Mobile10X is unique initiative from IAMAI (Internet and Mobile Association of India), specially curated to search and support quality App developers in India (http://mobile10x.in).
As we spoke, as a part of the program, Mobile10X conducts Nation Wide Hackathons “Mobile10X #HackforIndia 2” and in its present edition we are targeting smaller towns over multiple weekends in Sept/Oct/Nov 2016.The Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of India and Facebook are partnering with IAMAI on this initiative.
The concept of #HackforIndia is to support & showcase potentially great Ideas/Talent from Inner India, which is done by reaching out to developers/entrepreneurs/start-ups in their own city, helping them develop their idea/product to a minimum viable stage, after which it can be evaluated by an esteemed jury and can be further selected for attractive Prizes as well as incubation support/seed funding.
The Hackathons are held non-stop for 24 Hours at the selected location and at the end of these 24 hours, the participant is asked to submit his/her prototype/App for screening and evaluation for Prizes and future support. The winners will get the opportunity to demonstrate their apps to the Mobile Industry leaders and Jury members at a large event in New Delhi in the month of Dec 2016. There are prizes worth Rs 5 Lacs to be won in this competition.
