AppCircus @Innovation Qualcomm: and the Oscar goes to …

Last night, the teams behind 10 applications pitched their products at AppCircus São Paulo, bringing Innovation Qualcomm 2012 to a close. After an exciting evening of competition, the winners were announced.

VideoVivo came in first place. The app is a community marketplace for professionals to market and sell their services over live video. Founded in 2011, the company is headed by Ofer Baharav and Carl Jackson and based out of São Paulo and Silicon Valley. Chcek out the video, showing how this mobile platform works.

The idea and first prototype of VideoVivo came out during the first Startup Weekend Campinas, co-organized by Innoveur in May of 2011.

The runner-up was iPostal, an app that allows users to create and print real postcards from the pictures and messages on their phones. Currently working with iOS, it will be available for Android soon.

The event consolidates São Paulo as a relevant stage for mobile apps worldwide. Apps developed in China, Portugal, Argentina and US were pitched to compete with a wide range of solutions developed in Brazil, from games to geolocalization, marketing and real traffic information.

The presentations were judged by José Henrique Barreiro, Official for the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Tecnology and Innovation; Carlos Kokron, Managing Director of Latin America at Qualcomm Ventures; Cassio Spina, founder of Anjos do Brasil; Pedro Berti, Network & Community Manager at The AppDate SP; and Carlos Pessoa Filho, Director of Wayra Brazil.

The winner receives a nomination to the Mobile Premier Awards 2013 during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Congratulations to the winners, AppArtists and our more than special thanks to the judges and Qualcomm, the main supporter of this AppCircus edition!
