Vote for Your Favorite NetSquared Mashup Challenge Projects by March 21st

NetSquared's picture

Flex your voting muscles and help determine which of the 122 projects that were submitted to the NetSquared Mashup Challenge will go on to the 3rd Annual NetSquared Conference (N2Y3). The top 20 projects will have an opportunity to discuss and display their projects at the Conference. Conference attendees will vote to select the top three projects. All 20 projects will receive a share of $100,000 in prize money.

When you vote for your favorite projects this week, please keep these three criteria in mind:

1. Does the Mashup use the power of community and social networks to create change?
2. Is there a clear way to measure the success of the application; does this measurement directly relate to creating social impact?
3. Does the application give you a sense that the project exhibits passion and commitment to work for social change?

Ok, here's how to vote:

  1. If you have not already done so, please register and log into the NetSquared site.
