Chevrolet
Chevrolet will award two $2,500 prizes. One to the best Chevrolet in-vehicle app and one to the best app that includes Chevrolet's Remote API.

Clover
The developer who uses the Clover Point of Sale API and/or APK in the most 1) Innovative and 2) Useful manner wins the Clover Prize. John and the Clover team will decide.

Walk into your average store in 2013 – the consumer experience is not so different from the 1990s. Why? Because today's cash registers, payment terminals, and point-of-sale systems are single-purpose, closed devices, much like feature phones of the past. Integration of online ordering, mobile wallets, reservation systems, loyalty programs, lead generation systems, digital menus – basically anything -- has been virtually impossible.

Clover is transforming the face of brick-and-mortar commerce by developing Android-based hardware, cloud services, and an open platform for third-party developers, complete with a marketplace enabling merchants to purchase and distribute your apps to all their devices with a single tap. And we've partnered with the world's largest credit card processors to provide you massive leverage.

CrunchBase
Build something disruptive, innovative, or down right fun with the CrunchBase API and / or data exports. We'll award our favorite hack a $1,000 gift card from Amazon.com.
