scon13We are thrilled to announce the participants for this year’s Sugar App Throwdown, taking place at SugarCon 2013 in New York on April 10th. We had dozens of submissions come in across our VAR and ISV partner network, along with several coming from many third party developers and longtime community members. Narrowing it down to 6 contestants in the end wasn’t easy, but we think the final list is definitely an impressive one.

Without further ado, here’s this year’s participants:

We are really excited to see such a diverse group of contestants this year. Look to hear more about them in the coming weeks leading up to SugarCon, as we will be publishing interviews we are doing with them. And if you haven’t signed up for SugarCon 2013 yet, do so now to see this along with some of the best and brightest minds in CRM and technology alongside top vendors and partners.

If you were at SugarCon 2012 last spring, you’ll remember one of the exciting new events we added to the schedule, the inaugural Sugar App Throwdown. It pitted six of the most interesting and innovative applications in the Sugar ecosystem today against each other in front of the SugarCon audience of customers, partners, and prospects. All of the participants – participants, judges and hosts – are pictured above. It was a huge success and a crowd favorite, so we’re bringing it back with us to the 2013 event in New York in April as well, and we are looking for a new group of apps to be a part of it.

Last year, six partners shared their apps – Alertus, Contactually, Epicom, EasyAsk, NextPrinciples and ActivePrime. They presented their applications in a fast, freewheeling session.

We are looking for that killer application, that beautiful mix of the Sugar platform with an emerging business tool, or even how you took Sugar to the next level to showcase the flexibility of the platform. We want the best of the best again here, all for the chance to get your application in front of the largest CRM-focused conference crowd in history. If you think you have what it takes, submit your idea to us today.
