Wanted to relay a quick heads up on something you might dig...
We just launched the Financial Capability Development Competition (aka, FinCapDev). It's a mobile app development competition focused on building apps that will improve financial capability and access for working Americans. It's open to all US citizens and permanent residents, and we think that Android and iOS dev communities might be super interested in it. The proposal application period is currently open through early December.
For finalists that make it, we're putting up $100K in startup cash stipends; access to resource orgs including Facebook, Citi, MasterCard, Yodlee, and more; the opportunity to present an MVP to a panel of financial and tech industry experts at a financial services event in Miami in June 2013; $100K in prize money ($50K Grand Prize); and much more.
Check us out at www.fincapdev.com. You can also find us on Twitter (@FinCapDev) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/fincapdev).
