APPStart Challenge

Do you have an app idea?

Have you ever had an idea for a new mobile app, but it didn't go anywhere because you didn't have the tools and resources to develop it? Try the APPStart Challenge, which will connect your great ideas with the expertise and resources necessary for commercial launch.

The contest is open to all UW-Eau Claire, UW-Green Bay and UW-La Crosse faculty, staff, students and alumni with the winning finalist receiving a prize package totaling over $10,000 in cash and services. For questions about the contest, please read the FAQ.  If you still have questions, please contact Tony Hanson.
