April 18, 2005—VeriSign has launched the EPC Application Developers Contest to spur adoption and innovative uses of the EPCglobal Network. The contest's grand prize includes, among other things, $10,000 cash, the opportunity to use VeriSign's booth at this September's EPCglobal conference to demonstrate the application, and free access for a year to the VeriSign "Starter Service" that provides all the components necessary to use the EPCglobal network. Additionally, and perhaps most valuably, the winner will be given a chance to present the application to representatives from elite venture capital firms Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Beyers and Bessemer Venture Partners.
The winning application will be chosen based on "originality, applicability to a real business problem, effective use of the EPC Starter Services, and integration of the EPC Starter Services with entrants' proposed client application." The judges are a composite representation of supply chain, CPG, and investor interests:
