AppCampus is an open, global program for everyone regardless of nationality. The program is open globally both for companies and individuals/teams. AppCampus provides funding for mobile Apps developed for Windows Phone and additionally other Nokia platforms. AppCampus is €18 million joint project of Aalto University, Microsoft and Nokia that offer funding and coaching in mobile technology, design and usability to Windows Phone developers.

Mentor at Mobile App Acceleration Camp’13
I’m proud that I will be mentor to the accepted projects at Camp in Osijek and with other experts from Microsoft and Nokia will try to help developers to improve their apps which then would be eligible to get grant from AppCampus program.
Also, I’m happy that two teams from Bosnia and Herzegovina come from my city, Bijeljina. I hope that they would have success in AppCampus program as they are very talented developers with great ideas.
