Mission: Appossible, the NYU Mobile App Contest, Hosts Kickoff Event

Mission: Appossible article 2

This contest is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to a rapidly expanding market, with no prior coding experience required.

NYU students, alumni, faculty and staff gathered at NYU Stern on February 8 for the kickoff of the Second Annual MISSION: APPOSSIBLE, the NYU Mobile App Contest. A collaborative effort between Stern's W. R. Berkley Innovation Labs and Messapps, a New York-based design and development studio, the event began with an overview of the contest from Cynthia Franklin, director of entrepreneurship at the W. R. Berkley Innovation Labs and adjunct professor at Stern. Prospective participants then engaged in a Q&A session and an interactive presentation on mobile app best practices by Vasily Malyshev, CEO of Messapps. "Sales of mobile apps grew exponentially in 2016," said Franklin. "This contest is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to a rapidly expanding market, with no prior coding experience required."

Designed for techies and non-techies alike, MISSION: APPOSSIBLE provides entrepreneurs in the NYU community with the tools and know-how needed to launch a successful mobile app – without any coding experience required. For more information, please visit the contest website.
