Presenting BREMBO HACKATHON for tomorrow’s connected mobility
We are proud to announce our first hackathon: BREMBO HACKATHON.
An event born from one simple idea:
inspiring new solutions for the digital and connected mobility of tomorrow.
Seamless integration between modern life and how we get around is absolutely crucial for an efficiently-functioning society. Regardless of the type of transport, it’s essential to continuously raise the bar on mobility for us to craft the innovative-led world we strive to live in. It’s no secret, finding inspiring new solutions can be a real struggle. This is why we are inviting both start-ups and individuals to join us for this exciting challenge.
Sign up now and join us in Bergamo, Italy from June 24-26, where you’ll have the opportunity to team up and collaborate with automotive experts to help develop your creative ideas and work on a pitch.
We are waiting for your ground-breaking solutions. Winners will share a prize pool worth up to €30,000!
What does ‘efficient mobility’ mean to you? Is it sustainable? Does it add value to our lives and businesses? And most importantly does it resolve today’s challenges and those of the near future?
We need STARTUPS to come forward to answer these questions by exploring new possibilities and suggesting B2C-tailored solutions that rethink ‘efficient mobility’.
Taking advantage of current technologies (e.g Big Data, AI, AR/VR, blockchain), let’s brainstorm innovative, sustainable, efficient ideas for users of all modes of transport as well as mobility within large cities, creating new value propositions and a seamless experience for all.
The proposals submitted should be based on software/apps which use currently available hardware or purpose-built hardware.
Let’s create the tomorrow of mobility now!
Mobility within large cities
Passive and active users interacting with vehicles
