App Showdown 2018 is here!

Want to win $100,000? The 2018 $100,000 Small Business App Showdown contest is officially open for app submissions.
This contest is exclusively for developers who publish their app on the QuickBooks App Store between August 16, 2017 and Aug. 15, 2018.

Look what last year’s Grand Prize winner, Rao Meka of shopVOX, had to say:

Here are the three parts of the contest:

  • Part 1: PUBLISH: Any app published on the QuickBooks App Store between August 16, 2017 and Aug. 15, 2018 may be eligible to register for the contest and will be listed in the contest gallery.
  • Part 2: VOTE: Encourage your customers to VOTE for your app between August 16 and September 15, 2018.  Along with the voting results, Intuit uses contest criteria to select the 10 finalists.
  • Part 3: PITCH: Ten (10) finalists win a featured space at QuickBooks Connect and a chance to pitch to a panel of judges for the $100k Grand Prize!

What do you need to do right now?

Step 1: Build and publish your app on the QuickBooks App Store before Aug. 15, 2018!  This really means you need to submit for publishing before July 15, 2018 to have a higher chance of passing technical and security reviews in time for the contest deadline.  

Step 2: Enter the contest!  Once you’ve published your app (OR if your app is already published), ENTER your app into the contest, and it will be listed in our contest gallery.

Step 3: Vote!  Between August 16 and September 15, the contest gallery turns into a voting gallery, where everyone can vote for your app to become one of the 10 finalists. Intuit will use the results of the customer voting as well as other criteria (see the criteria specifics in the official rules) to select the 10 finalists.

Step 4: Compete! The 10 finalists will come to QuickBooks Connect in San Jose, CA, in November to show off their apps in a featured exhibit space, and pitch their app to a panel of judges for a chance at the $100K Grand Prize!

This year, just like last year, we’re dedicated to your success, so that means we’ll also do POST event marketing! So even if you don’t win the prize money, you’ll still have the opportunity to receive a TON of marketing support from the Intuit team.

What are you waiting for? Publish your app, and enter to win!
