Description

Join Cleveland Water Alliance, TechTown, Wayne State University, WeTech Alliance, AT&T, Cranbrook Institute of Science: Freshwater Forum, Digital C and many other great partners as we launch Erie Hack 2.0!

We will be enjoying drinks, snacks, and good company along with parallel celebrations in Buffalo, Cleveland, Erie PA, and Toledo as the next iteration of our regional competition kicks off.

Erie Hack is a $100,000 data and engineering competition designed to generate innovative technology solutions for Lake Erie Basin’s most pressing problems. This program leverages the expertise of researchers, designers, engineers, developers and creatives across the region to activate, cultivate and accelerate these hacks. 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. Now we are working with communities across the region to put our Great Lake back on the map in 2019.

Join us on February 7th at TechTown Detroit to learn more about Erie Hack and to celebrate this great success for our region.

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.
