Our next events will be taking place in Autumn 2017 – stay up to date below!
How about a weekend of skill sharing, idea inspiring and collaboration cultivation alongside new and experienced entrepreneurs across a range of industries? Our Serious Impact Challenge Weekends aren’t just a chance to form new peer groups among the cool gangs of the smart-cities, agri tech, clean-tech, health and sectors, you’ll also become immersed in identifying impact solutions to a pressing social or environmental challenge that could find an immediate route to market. Serious Impact Challenge Weekends:
- Present real world hackathon challenges to tease, torment and tickle your braincells.
- Require no specific knowledge or experience, just an open mind and a can-do attitude.
- Rattle along at a fine old pace with the help of full-blown industry experts and professional facilitators.
- Include complimentary refreshments and meals. Clear eyes. Full bellies. Can’t lose.
- Are entirely free. We’ll even validate your parking. Strictly no after-hours parties on-premises though.
Our first Challenge Weekend was run with CUTEC, in March, focusing on Transport in Cambridge. Our latest weekend took place in Peterborough, challenging teams to hack the Internet of Things to improve anything from efficiency to safety and build their own smart city.
