Apps for Europe is a support network with a mission to turn data based apps into viable businesses. By implementing Business Lounges at local app contests and hack events across the continent, Apps for Europe is accelerating the relationship between developers and investors. The culmination of these events is an International Business Lounge at the FutureEverything Festival, where the best apps, either invited after a local Business Lounge, or selected from our online competition, will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to win investment for the future development of their product.
