Three has opened up a new contest for students across the UK to select the best young entrepreneurs who can help in improvement of mobile technology.
The operator is now attempting to raise interest in the contest by dangling five £1000-worth tech gadgets for five different winners who will be shortlisted from Facebook and Twitter on 19 July.
Participating students, who must be at least 18 years old, need to fill out a form and explain their entrepreneurial activities and projects in the field of mobile technology. The students who win the contest will receive tech products like phones, computers, laptops and tablets cameras using which they can boost their research further.
The contest is part of Three's ongoing #makeitright campaign which seeks to make the mobile industry more competitive. To be eligible, apart from the age criteria, students must be either studying or have recently graduated.
ToM Malleschitz, CMO at Three, said, “Our new #makeitright campaign is all about trying to make the mobile industry better, so we’re delighted to be supporting students who are looking to do exactly that. Hopefully over the coming months we’ll be able to support some fantastic projects and we can’t wait to see the applications.”
Three's initiative to attract younger talents who can help in developing mobile technology is heartening. However, a setup where more and more operators and phonemakers can help in developing future technologies by investing in raw talents should be ideal for faster growth in technological inventions and their implementation.
