Description

Join us for the Buffalo Erie Hack 2.0 Quarterfinal Competition! Teams will pitch their solutions to Lake Erie's greatest problems to a panel of expert judges. Those who score highest will move on to the Erie Hack 2.0 semifinal for a chance to win Erie Hack and launch their ideas for protecting our region's valuable water resources.

Erie Hack is a $100,000 data and engineering competition designed to generate innovative technology solutions for Lake Erie Basin’s most pressing problems. In its first iteration, the program generated over 40 innovative solutions to water challenges, engaged over 100 partner organizations and attracted coverage from over 150 press outlets globally as it put over 200 of region’s best minds to work for our most precious resource.

Erie Hack 2.0 is a program of the Cleveland Water Alliance and is presented in partnership with local champions at TechTown Detroit, the University of Toledo, the University at Buffalo, the Innovation Collaborative, and WEtech Alliance.
