"More powerful than the might of all the armies on Earth is an idea whose time has come." - Victor Hugo This Hackathon is for all kinds of investors, hackers, inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs, developers, technologists, researchers, experts in various domains, technology professionals and even business and marketing professionals, whose area of professional focus includes Cloud, IoT, Big Data, AI, HealthCare, Life Sciences, Medical Devices, Medicine, Biotechnology, AR/VR, Blockchain, Enterprise or Consumer, etc. "Your cell phone has 10 sensors, and your car has 400. But your body has none - that's going to change." - Vinod Khosla We encourage participation from those who believe in radical innovation, those who want to explore new markets or try out new approaches and new models that change traditional systems/practices and even those who would otherwise shy away from participating in innovation outside their area of professional focus. "Human progress depends on the socially maladjusted." - Martin Luther King INVESTORS: Register to join the panel of judges and share your investment strategy with participating teams/startups. You would be amazed at seeing how participating teams bring up creative ideas in the area of your interest and transform them into sustainable business models. You should expect 30 - 50 teams pitching on the demo day at the Hackathon. INNOVATORS: Register to participate, build (or join) a team, develop a business model, demo your product and get seed funded by potential investors. You would be amazed at seeing how investors judge pitches, identify transformational and sustainable business models and write checks to seed-fund select winners.
