[liberationtech] SHIFT::Tech to award $25K to develop social good app in Armenia

Dear Liberation Tech,

On October 5th, 2013, history was made in Armenia -- the little country
that could, where leading minds have taken flight despite a difficult
social and political history.

Enter SHIFT::Tech. A world-wide app challenge that invites entrepreneurs
from around the world to pitch their ideas for a significant, scalable and
profitable mobile application to compete for $25,000 in design, branding
and world-class mobile development support -- all in Armenia.

In the last decade, Armenia has become one of the leading information
technology nations among CIS and Middle Eastern countries. With a booming
IT sector, which takes up a corruption-free 20% of the country's annual
GDP, start-ups are popping up all over the country. The world’s premier,
full-featured mobile photo editor, Picsart, Inc., for example, started in
Armenia and has 77 million users.

The competition will have the full support of non-profit crowdfunding
organization ONEArmenia and top app developer Social Objects, in addition
to a world-class jury that includes Alexis Ohanian and others.

ONEArmenia is not your traditional organization. We’ve put Armenia on the
map by showing the world that it’s a place where intrepid ideas can become
real, change-making individuals are empowered on a local level and the old
model of giving becomes a thing of the past. Portions of potential profits
from the winning SHIFT::Tech app will go towards funding ONEArmenia’s

We think your listeners and readers, especially those interested in using
technology for social good, will find SHIFT::Tech a real inspiration--and
want to participate. We hope you agree.

I appreciate your time and consideration for what ONEArmenia has to offer.
