Transform the Smartphone Challenge: Moto Mods and Indiegogo

         
With Moto Mods you can transform your smartphone in a snap - and the possibilities are truly endless. So far, we’ve unveiled Moto Mods that turn your phone into a camera, a movie projector, a speaker, or an extra battery pack for when your juice gets low. And that’s just the beginning.


We know we can’t come up with every Moto Mods idea on our own, and real innovation doesn’t just happen behind closed doors. That’s why we shared the Moto Mods Development Kit (MDK) with the world, allowing people everywhere to contribute to the ecosystem by bringing their own Moto Mods to life.

But it doesn’t end there. We are invested in the future of the Moto Mods ecosystem and we want to empower developers to dream, build and fund their own Moto Mods. Over the next few months, we’ll be introducing new opportunities to help developers get involved.

Moto Mods Indiegogo Campaign
We’re collaborating with Indiegogo, the global platform for entrepreneurs to bring their ideas from concept to market. Now, developers will have the opportunity to raise money to bring their Moto Mods to life.

Today through January 31st, 2016 , enter our Moto Mods Developer contest. Share your best Moto Mods idea for a chance to win an MDK and a Moto Z. Finalists will be selected by our judging panel of industry leaders. Winners will receive a trip to Chicago to meet with our Moto Mods executive development team, where they’ll discuss how to bring their idea to life.

Check out the Indiegogo page for more info about the program, including official rules and regulations. Then, submit your idea for a chance to turn your Moto Mods dream into reality.

Moto Mods Hackathons
Additionally, we’ll be hosting Moto Mods hackathons in the U.S. to inspire developers to bring their ideas to life. The first hackathon will be in New York in December. Anyone who creates Moto Mods during the hackathon will have the opportunity to participate in the Indiegogo campaign as well. A second Moto Mods hackathon will take place in San Francisco in January. For more information and to register, visit modthefuture.com. The hackathon winners will be pre-qualified to receive a trip to Chicago to discuss bringing their Moto Mod idea to market.

Lenovo Capital
Finally, if your idea really impresses us, it just might land you an investment from Lenovo Capital, who has set aside up to $1 million to help bring the best Moto Mods ideas to market. Our Moto Mods executive development team will be on the lookout for the best working prototypes. If it finds something truly outstanding, the responsible development teams will be invited to pitch for investment funding from Lenovo Capital. Investments will be made on terms proposed by Lenovo Capital, and are subject to due diligence and the eligible development team meeting Lenovo Capital's investment criteria.

It’s really that easy. All you need is an idea, the passion to bring it to life and the financial support to drive a new era of mobile technology forward.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
