Erie Hack: Hack Day#3 & Detroit/Windsor Quarterfinals

April 1, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

We’re nearing the big finish! Join us for the last team hacking day and the first of the pitch competitions that will narrow the field of teams moving on to the Cleveland finals. Saturday morning will be our last organized, on-site work day at which coaches and mentors will be available to the teams. Teams will also be able to use the time to polish their pitches before presenting in the afternoon.

The first round of selections for Erie Hack Teams registered in Detroit begins at 1:30pm! Teams will pitch their project to a panel of judges from environmental, entrepreneurial, and tech backgrounds to determine who will represent Detroit and Windsor at the April 13th Semi-Finals at TechTown Detroit. All regional teams must participate in order to be eligible for final prizes, but only four teams will move to the semi-finals. Over $5,000 in cash and in-kind prizes will awarded to the four winners!
