Erie Hack: Info Session
February 2, 2017 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Erie Hack: Innovate Around the Lake is a tech-driven international water innovation competition and accelerator program that will bring together coders, developers, engineers and water experts to generate creative solutions to Lake Erie’s biggest challenges. The competition, which will award $100,000 to the winners, focuses on creating publicly accessible mobile apps, open data and new technology to elevate the value of clean water and leverage its potential to drive the economic vitality of the Great Lakes region [aka “The Blue Economy.”] The Erie Hack is managed by the The Cleveland Water Alliance in collaboration with IBM and DigitalC as well as local champions and funders from each of Lake Erie’s major metropolitan areas.
This Info Session is kicking off the competition’s public face in Detroit! If you’re interested in driving participation in the competition or participating yourself, this Session is the place for you. Facilitated by your local Erie Hack Champions, TechTown and Wayne State University, the event is a crash course in timelines, rules, prizes, and the team formation process. These Erie Hack Organizers will get you up to speed on the state of the Hack, tied in consistent updates, and ready to gear up as we approach the February 23rd Official Launch.
Networking 7 to 8pm
