Telerik Virtual Accelerator for Windows 8

I recently received an e-mail from Telerik after they read through my blog and looked at my portfolio suggesting that I should enter their contest. I thought that instead of keeping the details all to myself I would share them with everyone! I have personally trialled Telerik’s products for applications that I have had a play with and they are of a very high quality and are work taking a look at. You can download trials from within Visual Studio’s Extensions and Updates and searching for Telerik. RadControls are the must have trials to have a play around with! Take a look at the RadControls for Windows Phone here: http://www.telerik.com/products/windows-phone.aspx


Telerik believe that every bright idea needs a little help to get going and that’s where their Virtual Accelerator contest comes into play. They are looking for the next smashing Windows 8 app prototype from an inspired development team which they will help to become successful.

The winning entry will receive:

  • A $30,000 USD investment in exchange for a minority equity in your team.
  • A week boot camp in Hong Kong (entirely covered by Telerik) and 3 months of virtual mentorship after with Paul Orlando, the director of Accelerator HK and part of TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2012 Hackathon winners PoachBase.
  • Access to free Telerik perks and discounts on their range of products

I think although it might be ambitious, this is still a great opportunity for a development team with a great app idea to work with Telerik. You can find all the details about the contest here: http://www.telerik.com/campaigns/acceleratorwin8.aspx
