Got an app idea? Well, we’ve got just the contest for you as the Entrepreneurship Lab, in association with Seidenberg, presents the Pace Mobile App Design Contest 3.0/Hackathon on Friday, March 27!

Based on the popular hackathon, participants form teams to create a concept mobile application* using any tool (e.g., or a scripting/programming language (e.g., HTML5), and demonstrate it to the audience and the judging panel. Prizes are awarded based on a combination of popular vote and judges' expert opinion. First prize is $500, second prize is $250, and third prize is $100.

But you’ve got to be in it to win it. So, who can compete? Only Pace University students are allowed to participate in the hackathon (from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m). Registered participants will form teams of two to four students. All teams must include students from at least two different schools or colleges at Pace (i.e. Lubin School of Business and Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems). At 6:00 p.m., each team will have three minutes to demonstrate their mobile application and a networking reception will follow. Register to compete or learn more about the contest.

*What exactly is a concept mobile application? A concept mobile application is an interactive prototype software application accessible via smartphone, tablet, or desktop, and has the look-and-feel of a mobile application but may or may not have the programming logic to perform the associated features. It can be operated using links that go from one screen to the other.
