About the BlackBerry Challenge
As part of AngelHack-BlackBerry collaboration, BlackBerry posted a 60-day challenge to all AngelHack attendees in the Asia Pacific region. Start-ups were challenged to submit a BlackBerry 10 app relevant to their line of business within 60 days of their respective AngelHacks. The best teams were selected from the cities and were flown into Hong Kong for BlackBerry Jam Asia to attend a start-up mentorship workshop by AngelHack mentors, BlackBerry technical evangelists and business development experts. At the end of the workshop, the teams competed against one another at the Angel Hack Start-Up Asia Pacific Challenge in front of BlackBerry Jam Asia attendees for a grand prize of $10,000 USD!
