What happens when 10 teams of app developers walk into a room at Intuit’s Small Business App Showdown? One team leaves with $100,000 grand prize, the coveted title of Small Biz App Showdown winner and official bragging rights for the next year.
On Wednesday, November 15, the finalists, who chugged copious amounts of caffeine while churning out code, will make their big debuts to compete for the grand prize. The contest spans several months but leads to one moment of truth on stage in front of a panel of judges. Last year’s champion, Share a Refund, will pass on the torch to one lucky finalist who the judges deem the winner at QuickBooks Connect 2017 in San Jose, California.

The Small Business App Showdown isn’t the only exciting event happening during the conference. QuickBooks Connect is an annual gathering that brings accountants, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and developers all under the same roof. Creating connections is paramount at the conference and this is accomplished by having an inspiring lineup of speakers like Shonda Rhimes and Nate Berkus, creating interactive environments for networking like transforming a portion of convention center into a park for relaxing dialogue and informative breakout sessions with ample time for discussion afterward.
Share a Refund is looking forward to another energizing, business-boosting experience at QuickBooks Connect. See you in San Jose!
