You heard it before, software is eating the world. There is plenty of eating to do in the Ports and Logistics sectors. Ports America, the Port Authority of NY/NJ and the world's largest shipping line, Mærsk Line, are backing a hackathon focusing on Ports and Logistics.
100+ participants with multiple backgrounds - developers, business people, designers, domain experts, and yes even lawyers - will gather for 48 hours of building prototypes, rapid fire market validation and business model invention.
The event will be hosted by the Manhattan Cruise Terminal and will take place from 5.30pm Friday January 20th to 6pm Sunday January 22nd.
The winning team will receive a cash prize of $5,000 and direct access to key sponsor executives to discuss if and how implementing their idea makes sense in the real world.
We will recruit 15 world class mentors and have a jury of senior industry executives and entrepreneurs.
Tickets cost $10 and include food and drinks from Friday evening to Sunday evening. Bring your laptop & any other device you need to disrupt ports and logistics.
