If you have an idea for a cloud-based app that would benefit small businesses, you could win $US5000.
Xero has announced a competition for app makers which has very few limitations. To be eligible for the cloud accounting provider’s XDHax competition apps must use the Xero API and run in the cloud, but they can address any problem faced by small businesses.
Entered apps will be judged on their usefulness, innovativeness, quality and design (including compliance with the Xero user interface).
There are three separate prizes for each of the APAC, EMEA and Americas regions. Each winner will receive $US5000, and given the opportunity to exhibit at the relevant Xerocon event, to become part of the AWS Activate program ($US1000 in AWS credit, online training and more), to be featured in the Xero app marketplace, and to be featured in Xero's community and social channels.
Entries must be submitted by 7 September 2018, and the winners will be announced on 25 September.
