About AMC

The Arab Mobile Challenge 2015 (AMC) is your opportunity to enhance your entrepreneurial skills, showcase your unique and innovative thinking and also win big!! This challenge is not only for people with technical skills, but for people with great ideas that can translate into viable solutions. This year the Arab Mobile Challenge is very happy to be introducing two tracks, one for ideas and one for early stage start-ups, so everyone’s chances to win are much higher regardless of the stage of growth you’re at.

We will be physically available to run bootcamps in countries and cities closest to you, and while we would love to be everywhere the smart entrepreneurs are, we will surely miss some of you, so we will be providing you with all the possible assistance through remote acceleration, which will be a toolkit covering all the same material that people attending events will have access to.

With our continued commitment to you, we will also be launching an online mentoring platform, allowing you to post your questions, and for regional mentors to address them remotely. So wherever you are, we will find a way to reach you!

Finalist teams will be invited to Regional Finals in January 2016. Some winning teams will be winning financial prizes, and some will be invited to go to Barcelona to compete in the Global Mobile Competition during the Mobile World Congress, 2016. We are super excited to have you with us for another BIG year!
