Mobile Incubation Week is back, and this time we’re heading to our nation’s capitol in search of the best and brightest mobile entrepreneurs. The fourth Mobile Incubation Week will be held at Microsoft’s offices in Washington, D.C., September 28 through October 2, 2009.
If you’re an entrepreneur and have an idea for a great Windows Mobile application, would like to port your existing app, or want to accelerate development of your current Windows Mobile application, we are now accepting nominations.
Mobile Incubation Week puts you on the fast track to success with dedicated coaches, development support, and business insights. The week will feature development time supported by Windows Mobile technical gurus, business coaching from members of Microsoft’s Emerging Business Team, sessions on upcoming releases such as Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Marketplace for Mobile, and more! We’ll wrap up on Friday with final judging and prizes, featuring a panel of industry experts, venture capitalists, and members of the press.
This event offers a unique perspective and exciting opportunity for any startup building on the Windows Mobile platform. Check out the feedback from our last event in Mountain View:
