This weekend (Nov 12-13) HERE is proud to sponsor the Lady Problems Hackathon in Vancouver. The Lady Problems Hackathons focus on four challenges that address the key barriers preventing female entrepreneurship: health and access to healthcare; safety, making sure women feel safe when they go to, are at, and come home from work; economic empowerment to maximize the resources women need to grow their business; and culture, to help women gain the support they need from their families, communities, coworkers, and employers.
We believe our maps and location services can be a great asset while addressing these challenges and so we are posing a special HERE challenge: we want you to join us in Vancouver this weekend and use any of our APIs or SDKs in your hacks! We’re looking for practical and/or creative applications of our maps and location services to any of the Lady Problems challenges. Hacking for a cause is of course its own reward, but we will also be giging away a small herd of Cozmo robots as prizes to the winning team!
So what are you waiting for?!? Sign up here and see you in Vancouver! (Hint: if you can’t make it to Vancouver, we will also be participating in the Boston and Berlin events. So stay tuned for more information.)
