BlackBerry Partners Fund issues challenge to developers


BlackBerry Partners Fund

The BlackBerry Partners Fund has announced a competition to be settled at the upcoming BlackBerry Developer Conference in October, where contestants will be vying for prizes including “RIM devices, cash, company spotlights and more.” Categories include:

Most Innovative Game
Most Innovative Multimedia Application
Most Innovative Personal Productivity and Lifestyle Application
Most Innovative Enterprise Application
Most Innovative Web Application

Not only is the BlackBerry Developers Conference the perfect venue for the $150 venture capital fund to see what developers are up to, but it’s also a great opportunity for devs to network and hone their skills. Be sure to stick around next week, when we have a talk with BlackBerry Partner Fund’s Rick Segal for more background on the firm. In the meantime, be sure to check out the revamped site for contact info and news on the fund. If you’re a developer and looking to get into the show, be sure to register for the BlackBerry Developer Conference before the end of the month to save $200. There’s also a call to papers until August 22nd. that will get you through the doors for free.

    Just an FYI. I made a mistake and uploaded the wrong Terms and Conditions to the site for the developer challenge. It will get corrected tonight. The Challenge is open to everyone in the world.
