Fiber Mobile App Scholarship Contest
The Disruption Institute’s goal is to make Kansas City into a world leader for mobile innovation. Google fiber presents us with a tremendous opportunity to do that.
We want to help foster the creation of new mobile ideas for this next-generation network, so we created a Fiber Mobile App Scholarship Contest!
Do you want to learn how to build mobile apps? Do you have an innovative fiber mobile app idea?
We’re giving away three scholarships to three individuals (18 years or older) with innovative mobile ideas that could leverage fiber speed networks!
Beginning February 22nd, 2013 at 12:00PM CST through February 28th, 2013 at 11:59PM CST , individuals (18 years & older) will be able to enter our Fiber Mobile App Scholarship Contest.
