This Sunday, 22 July, is the final deadline for submissions to start-up accelerator Springboard Mobile. Springboard is looking for the 10 best mobile founders, in any area of mobile services and technology.
Those 10 teams will receive over $150,000 of free services, and seed capital of up to £15,000, in return for 6 per cent founder equity – though teams that are already funded or have revenue can can participate in Springboard with all the free services, in return for 3 per cent founder equity.
One of the names involved is mobile marketing pioneer Russell Buckley, who discussed the Springboard programme in our video interview last month. Buckley – co-founder of AdMob, which sold for $750m in 2009 – is an angel investor and will be mentoring successful applicants along with mobile entrepreneurs including Harry Dewhirst, co-founder of Amobee, which sold for $321m, and Ben Barokas, co-founder of Admeld, which sold for $450m.
If you’re the founder of a mobile business, and that sounds appealing, you can apply for a place on Springboard Mobile here.
