The fund, called StarFund

"What we know is that great teams and products can still get to the top in mobile social gaming," said CrowdStar mobile head Blair Hamilton. "With StarFund, we are looking to fund the next stars in mobile social games."
Developers may apply to receive up to $250,000 in funding through CrowdStar's online application
