Rackspace is proud to announce Round Two of King of the Apps[2]! The question is, are you ready to claim the cape and crown of your own?  Oh and if capes and crowns aren’t big enough motivators, there’s also $10,000 in cash and prizes.

So show us what your app can do with Rackspace Cloud Files[3], and you could be on your way to Vegas for a head-to-head battle royale with the reigning King of the Apps. The last app standing will be crowned King of the Apps and go home with $5,000 in cash and a $5,000 Cloud credit from Rackspace.

The Round Two final showdown will take place on May 10th during Interop at the House of Blues in Las Vegas[4].

King of the Apps Round Two is coming[5]. Can you bring it?

Rackspace Startup Program

While we love a good competition, we also love startups. Having grown from startup ourselves, we’re excited to return to our roots with the Rackspace Startup Program[6].

Through our sponsorships with 500 Startups, TechStars and General Assembly, we are working to build a community of fostered relationships. From SoMa to SoHo, Boulder to Boston, we’re here to encourage and to support startups at every step on their journeys toward success.

In addition to receiving free cloud computing[7] resources, program participants will be provided with guidance and mentorship from Rackspace technical experts and entrepreneurs.

We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know about your startup. For additional information, please contact Jeff Lamboy[8].
