6Wunderkinder to win €150,000 in Vodafone’s Startup Competition

August 4, 2011 - Comments

It’s been a super exciting month for the 6Wunderkinder team and today things got even better. We are very excited to announce that we have been selected as one of the five finalists for the German leg of the Vodafone Mobile Clicks awards – the largest mobile internet start-up competition in the world!

Already known as the biggest start-up competition of its kind, this year’s Vodafone Mobile Clicks is open to seven markets. Any start-up in Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Turkey or the United Kingdom that has a mobile site, service or application can compete for the €225,000 prize fund.

We face some tough competition in the form of MyMobai, playSocial, booklet mobile and wahwah.fm – but we believe we’ve got what it takes to go all the way and win the first prize jackpot of €150,000.

On August 29th all five finalists will take to the stage at a specially arranged Mobile Clicks Mobile Monday event in Berlin. 6Wunderkinder will go up against the other four start-ups before a selected jury and the winner from that event will go on to represent Germany at the international finals in Amsterdam at the annual PICNIC conference. Should we make it to Amsterdam, we’ll be up against finalists from The Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Spain and Turkey in a bid to win that coveted grand prize.

We have so many exciting announcements underway – including celebrating our 1-year anniversary – and we’re just delighted to have been included in this prestigious competition.

We wouldn’t have made it this far without our loyal users so thank you for your support!

Please share your comments and thoughts if you’d like to recognize our hard work – and if you’re in Berlin on August 29th, why not try to make it down!
