IoT for Independent Living
Do you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur? We’re hosting an epic Startup Hackathon weekend at IXDS, giving you the chance to co-found an IoT startup with Germany’s leading service design studio.
The objective is to create a user-centered solution for people living with a disability or impairment. We have the funding, an incredible talent pool of designers and engineers, a great studio space with a hardware lab in Berlin Kreuzberg, a network of industry experts and a business coach who co-founded 3 startups. But we're looking for the final piece before we begin our adventure: dedicated co-founders. That could be you. We're offering €30,000 and a majority stake in the new company to the winners of our Startupathon, who will build this new venture with us.
This event is not only for engineers; any enthusiastic entrepreneur can apply.
