NewPathVR is producing our first Wellness Hackathon on the weekend of September 30-October 1, 2017 at UploadVR in San Francisco, CA. We’re convening a group of interested developers for the weekend Hackathon, with a real-world mission of “creating life changing products in the health and wellness arena”. Participants will have a chance to collaborate on diverse teams with projects reviewed by industry leaders and entrepreneurs.
How It Works
We’ll create “dream teams” with people from various interest groups on one team. Each team will have a mix of necessary disciplines — editor/producer, designer, tech person, business-savyy pro — who will learn to work together throughout the weekend of the Hackathon. The weekend will be a combination of focused talks and training from innovation leaders and experts, work sessions and final presentations of startups from each team. Industry experts will provide expertise to each team and help them rapidly develop their solution. Judges will pick a winning team based on the startup’s viability, feasibility and desirability.
Registration fees help cover the cost of food and drinks, as well as producing the weekend Hackathon. Early Bird Registration costs $29 for students and $49 for professionals, and the deadline is September 15, 2017. Thereafter, regular registration costs $49 for students and $69 for professionals.
Travel and housing costs are up to participants, but we do have a group rate at a nearby hotel. UploadVR is located within a 30 minutes drive of San Francisco International Airport. A special travel page for the Hackathon is coming soon!
