New Developer Contest: Build a Business on Twilio

Welcome_banner_powertophones-e1289335860656 We’re off the Startup Bus and back from Austin. While there we met a ton of people from our awesome community and were proud that one of the winners of Startup Bus was a Twilio powered app (WalkIN). We want to keep that energy going, so this week’s contest is all about building businesses with Twilio.

Submit your best Twilio-powered business (new or existing) and you could win an Amazon Kindle 3G and $100 in Twilio credit. Entries must be submitted by 11:59pm PT on Sunday March 27th. Entries can be submitted here.

Keeping it Lean

Have you started a Twilio-powered business after purchasing AppSumo’s Lean Startup Bundle? Be sure to enter it in their Lean Startup Challenge for a chance to win even more prizes! (Like $1k in Twilio credit, $50k in investment from 500 Startups, and one-on-one time with heavyweights like Eric Ries and Dave McClure.) But hurry, AppSumo’s Lean Startup Challenge ends March 23rd!

What’s This Developer Contest All About?

Each week we announce a new category to encourage developers to try Twilio for different use cases, industries, and integrations.  As a language-agnostic platform for cloud communications, we want to see developers from all backgrounds find success and solve problems with Twilio.  To fire your imagination and reward your efforts, we’ve run this developer contest for over a year.

How To Get Involved

Submissions to the contest can be submitted here.  If you need any help or want to bounce ideas off other Twilio developers, please join us on our forums or drop a note to help@twilio.com.
