Do you have a first-to-market idea with a fresh approach on design elegance, and superior quality and performance? Are you a developers and/or entrepreneur with the ambition to launch the next big thing in mobile?

The Aalto University (Finland), Nokia and Microsoft have started a joint venture to accelerate mobile application development. With a working budget of 18 million euros they foster mobile application development on Windows Phone and any other Nokia platform. All Belgian – Luxembourg entrepreneurs, start-ups and companies can apply for the AppCampus Award.




Successful AppCampus-applicants will receive awards varying from 20.000, 50.000, to 70.000 euros, depending on the complexity of the app. In addition, from within the AppCampus initiative, you will get access to world-class training, coaching and marketing support. Windows Phone Store and Nokia Store offer global monetization opportunities to program participants via distribution to consumers around the world.

AppCampus is 100% free of charge. It does not obtain intellectual property rights, nor is it interested in any commission from the investment.


AppCampus is a global initiative. Anyone from anywhere in the world can apply as long as you have a corporate identity. (For students we have the Imagine Cup and Imagine Cup grants program)

The only requirement is that successful applications are expected to be available exclusively on Windows Marketplace, or Nokia Store for a limited time. More information here.
