B2B VR Hackathon in Brussels
Fri, 21 Oct 2016, 18:00 – Sun, 23 Oct 2016, 23:00 CEST
Sprout to be a VR Hacker!
The VR Hackathon is back, focusing this time on B2B solutions!
The B2B applications will be targeting the following fields: Health, Commerce, Real Estate, and Data Visualization. ARE YOU READY TO HACK ?!
The event will hence be a mix between a Hackathon and a Startup Week-end as the purpose is to encourage attendees to take giant leaps toward creating disruptive industries through VR, connecting them with experts and resources.
Organized by the Microsoft Innovation Center Brussels, Impulse's Software & Screen Clusters as well as EU.VR, the event will be hosted at ICAB, the first business and technology Incubator in Brussels.
We want to create an environment that embraces new ideas and technology solutions for immersive technologies. We know it takes longer than a weekend to build great solutions, but this is ample time to form teams of good people and begin creating great solutions.
This is a call for tech developers, business profiles, industry experts, game programmers, makers, UI/UX designers, artists, animators, storytellers, enthusiasts, professionals, students, and all that want to spend a weekend creating solutions with virtual reality and other immersive technologies.
