A one day ‘hackathon’ will be held at the Eastern Innovation Business Centre to uncover the possibilities and potential of Business ICT and internet connectivity in South East Melbourne business precincts in partnership with the City of Kingston, City of Frankston, City of Knox, City of Monash and Innovation Melbourne. Hosted at the Eastern Innovation Business Centre on the 6th of June, teams will have the space to ideate and pitch their NOW and their NEXT solutions to a panel of judges and to an audience of potential customers for prizes of cash and services.
WHAT IS A HACKATHON?
It’s a bringing together of people for a fast-paced development of innovative solutions to a problem. Coders, technicians, marketers, researchers and hackers form complementary teams and work to look for possible solutions, develop concepts and plans, bringing together with a pitch to specialists and interested parties.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Teams register or the organisers will design and create teams from diverse backgrounds to explore and develop ideas. Teams will pitch the ideas with the most market feasible pitch winning a cash prize and an opportunity to further develop their solution with researchers, suppliers and potential clients.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
If you are involved in information technology or innovative emerging telecommunications you may would do well to register to participate as an individual interested in being part of a solutions team, or as a company team ready to “pitch’ a solution to business case studies on the day.
Sponsors are invited to connect with the ConnectHack2017 team to promote their products or services to this exciting demographic.
