6 ABOUT TO BREAK
 
 

SF New Tech & Macworld/iWorld 2014 are pleased to present "6 About To Break" - the first-ever competition to be held at Macworld/iWorld to spotlight the most innovative apps, accessories, software and utilities that are uniquely positioned to breakout in the Apple marketplace.

We reviewed over 100 global companies spanning hardware, software, mobile apps, accessories and utilities who applied for a chance to be one of the 6 About To Break.

This very special event will be structured in the same format as SF New Tech: each company will receive five minutes to present and five minutes to answer robust audience questions.

And, to keep things interesting, we've rounded up an all-star panel of judges to provide expert commentary on each company while hundreds of iFans (you!) will vote in the very first winner of the 6 About To Break competition!
 

Judges include:

* Dylan Tweney, Editor-in-Chief, VentureBeat
* Leander Kahney, Publisher, Cult of Mac
* Paul Kent, GM, IDG Macworld/iWorld Expo
* Heather Meeker, Principal, MeekerQuinn
* Andy Grignon, Founder, Quake Labs (Andy served under Steve Jobs at Apple and was the first person to receive a phone call from Jobs on an iPhone.) 

Immediately following the competition, Macworld/iWorld and SF New Tech will host a cocktail party to raise a glass to innovation.
