We’re closing in on the big finish!

Join us for fhe second round of selection for all Erie Hack teams across the basin! Four teams from each location of the hack (Buffalo, Cleveland/Erie, Detroit/Windsor, and Toledo) will pitch their project to a panel of judges from environmental, entrepreneurial, and tech backgrounds to determine who will advance to the finals in Cleveland on May 2nd and 3rd. If you’ve never seen a pitch competition, this is your chance to get a first hand look at some truly innovative ideas. All qualifying teams must participate in order to be eligible for prizes. Only eight teams will move to the finals! Free and open to the public. Refreshments served.
