The Apps are in: meet our teams, cast your vote!

Come one, come all to the BigApps Block Party at Brooklyn’s up-and-coming Industry City! At the first event of its kind, over 100 BigApps contestants will pitch their projects to contest judges and compete for their chance to win over $100,000 in cash prizes. The public will weigh in with a “People’s Choice” vote that culminates with a BigApps Battleground live pitch.

Meanwhile, at our Startup Campus, major tech-industry sponsors and local tech firms will show off their next generation of products and gadgets. We’ll have food, games, music, and activities for all ages and interests – stop by to see why everyone is talking about BigApps!

Event Details:

The BigApps Block Party – hosted at Brooklyn’s Industry City – is an all-out celebration of all things tech, with food trucks, music, games, Etsy sellers, live pitches, and more. It’s a family-friendly event that showcases the power of partnership between the City’s vibrant technology sector and the City’s vital nonprofit and civic network.

At the Block Party, BigApps teams will demo their products and compete for a chance to advance to the BigApps Finals. The top 5 “People’s Choice” teams (determined via online and onsite public voting) will also go head-to-head in the BigApps Battlefield, pitching to a celebrity panel for one guaranteed spot in the Finals.

We invite the world to come and watch what BigApps 5.0 has built. Share your favorite BigApps moments using the hashtag #BigApps on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr.
