Last chance to enter 2015 MTN Business App of the Year Awards

South Africa’s best and brightest app developers have less than a week to submit their apps to the MTN Business App of the Year Awards. Entries close on 3 July 2015.

The MTN Business App of the Year Awards is the premiere app awards event in South Africa offering prizes, media coverage, prestige, networking and industry recognition. Previous winners have reported significant benefit from revenue stream boosts after being named among the top apps in South Africa.

Griffiths says he would definitely recommend the MTN Business App of the Year Awards to other garage developers. His message for them is, “Never doubt yourself. Even though you are competing with the big guys, with multinational companies, anyone has the ability to win. You have the ability to go wherever you put your mind to!”

The MTN Business App of the Year Awards have brought together top industry players and co-sponsors who are committed to using the event as a platform to promote and support quality relevant app development addressing real African business and social needs. As an example of this commitment, Intel has even made loan equipment available to developers for the duration of the Awards period. To take advantage of this FREE opportunity, email . Other co-sponsors include technology giant Microsoft and development lab and accelerator Mlab.
