Event description

Description

Hackathon is a grand gathering of people to create ideas that come to life. Think out of the box, try new technologies, ask questions, make mistakes, discover a new language, and have fun!

We provide students with a real life business challenge that allows them to find insights through data analytics.

Wayfair will be providing case details and data for teams to use; details will be shared with mentors in advance of the competition. Last year, Wayfair provided us with a Supply Chain Analytics challenge to recommend the number of warehouses to add, where to add them, and the profile of items each will store and fulfill.

The Judges for Babson Hackathon 2019 will include CXOs and Directors from Wayfair and CVS Health.

So, come together with your classmates for the opporunity to create or program your own solution. There will be prizes, food, workshops, and more! Form a team of 4 students ahead of time or ask us to match you to a team. Additional details regarding logistics etc. will be provided at a later date. Each student team will be assigned a mentor from BCG, Broadcom, CVS Health, Cleartelligence, FTI Consulting, Harvard Business Publishing, Oxford Global Resources and survey.com. First five teams get to choose their own mentor. For more details: visit babsonhackathon.com or email to nhaider1@babson.edu or vyelemane1@babson.edu
