Samsung and Handmark Announce Gaming Innovation Fund

October 28th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: Symbian, Platforms: Windows Mobile | No Comments »

Samsung In order to drive more traffic to their Samsung Applications Store, Samsung and Handmark have announced a new fund to target innovators in mobile game development.

The fund is aimed at companies and/or individuals with innovative gaming ideas. When selected, the fund will provide up to $ 250.000. The games should be showcasing advanced features of Samsung phones in order to apply (which might make a roll-out to other brands a bit harder). The fund will be managed by Handmark.

“We know there’s a wealth of great ideas out there waiting to be discovered,” said Chris Barnett, senior vice president of Global Sales and Strategic Partnerships for Handmark. “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone, including big brands, mobile developers or any individual with a unique, creative idea to make it a reality.”

“Samsung recognizes the importance of content and applications for today’s mobile phone users,” said Ho Soo Lee, executive vice president for Samsung Electronics’ Media Solution Center. “We are pleased to broaden our partnership with Handmark to help lead the Global Venture Fund, using their expertise to support us capturing great ideas and raise the standard of mobile innovation.”

In addition to funding those selected, Handmark will also provide assistance with development, testing and certification, as well as distribution of the application through the Samsung Application Store.

To submit a proposal or for more information, visit www.handmark.com/company/samsungfund. The deadline for entries is November 20, 2009 at 5 PM CT.
