Rock the Vote (for fbFund apps)

November 11, 2008ByCat Lee

We're in the final stage of our first fbFund competition. Help us choose the top five teams. Each will be awarded $225,000 in addition to the $25,000 they received in Round 1.

Whether or not you've submitted an entry this year, we would love to hear from you and know what you think makes a great application. You've helped Facebook Platform grow into the success that it is today, and we want your voice in shaping the next generation of applications.

We've narrowed the list down from 600 teams of developers and entrepreneurs to these top 25 candidates. We made the first-round selections, but for the second round we want you to help by voting for the applications. The finalists' ideas touch on everything from sports, games and parties to education, productivity and religion. View each team's 30-second overview and try out their application before voting.

Cast your vote by Sunday, November 30th. We expect to announce the winners the week of December 8th. fbFund: Help us choose.from Julia Lam

We look forward to funding more great teams in January after this competition concludes. Please fan the fbFund Page and stay tuned for announcements.


fbFund is $10M seed fund that awards grants to talented entrepreneurs who we think will build successful, meaningful businesses on Facebook Platform.
