To give more information about our challenges we are creating a series of prehack events to engage the partners and participants prior to the main event, Ultrahack Sprint I, May 18th-20th. These will provide opportunities to hear more about the challenge, ask any questions you may have and network to perhaps find team mates and/or ideas. The opportunity to engage and participate via a webinar platform will also be available. Link will be shared prior to the event.
