And announcing the Uber Smart City Prize
On top of the $100,000 Grand Prize, we’ve now partnered with Uber to introduce an awesome new prize: the Smart City Prize. Uber wants you to build your idea of a more connected and transportation efficient city with their API.
- If you haven’t applied yet…Apply NOW!
- Read the rules. Read ‘em all cause we’re going to be following them! Set yourself up for success, and you’ll be one step closer to taking home the $100,000 Grand Prize.
- Start brainstorming. While participants are not allowed to begin building their projects before the Hackathon, brainstorming, mockups and wireframes are encouraged and recommended. What problem will you solve? How will you do it?
- Get excited, & spread the word. This is a record-breaking hackathon, and you are invited to join us and build something amazing.
Oh…and one more thing.
