Cashtie App Challenge - Countdown

We are ready to countdown the submission deadline for the Cashtie App Challenge. The App Challenge is an opportunity to showcase your application to some of the largest companies and retailers in the world at InComm's Partner Alliance at the end of March.

We have retailers like Target, WalMart, CVS and product partners like Apple, Microsoft and many more confirmed for our event.  The winners of our App Challenge will have their own joint booth at the Partner Alliance and we will facilitate one on one meetings for you with retailers and product partners.

The deadline for the submission is Monday, March 10th at 5pm ET. We need a screencast showcasing your application, web, mobile or offline using the Cashtie barcode within the application. The application does not need to be up and running and we even encourage you to showcase applications that may not currently be supported by our regulatory framework, but show a glimpse in the future of how to use the Cashtie barcode i.e. for peer to peer payments and other solutions. Every submission is welcome.

We will try to invite all valid submissions to the Partner Alliance, regardless if you are one of the winners or not. In addition we have an extra price for the "Social Impact" winner, with a potential grant coming from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in cooperation with Transact 2014, where our winner will as well showcase their App to the nearly 4000 attendees in a booth sponsored by E.T.A. and the Foundation.

I am looking forward to working with you on your submission and let me know if you need any help with the screencast. I suggest to submit your app and screencast no later then 3/7, so we can still suggest some changes if needed. We are very fortunate to have an amazing judging panel as well and they will vote the 11 winners on 3/11. Some of the judges may get back to you as well considering their field of expertise, they are comprised of VC's, digital content, media and retail leaders.

You can submit your screencast here: http://cashtie.challengepost.com/submissions/new

Let me know what else you may need from us. We are here to support you and wish you best of luck and excited to see your application!

Best,

Thomas Cornelius, SVP InComm
