EU Mobile Challenge

The competition for European young app developers

IE Business School and Applied Innovative Institute, in collaboration with Mobile World Capital Barcelona, are organizing the first edition of the EU Mobile Challenge. It is about the European mobile development contest that is going to happen before the World competition. Europe adds itself to the challenge already begun by Asia, the United States and the Middle East. The winners of this competition will dispute the final at 4 Years From Now (4YFN), the startup event devoted to innovation in the mobile and digital ecosystem that it is part of Mobile World Congress 2015.
