In this case, we will find a team for you to join.
At the Tourism Data Challenge, you can join individually or in teams. Teams may have up to 5 people. When submitting the video, you can indicate the names of your team members. Even if you join as a team, all team members need to sign up for the event independently. If you don’t have a team after registration, we will assign you to a team based on your application.
We will kick off with a hackathon to ideate solutions on September 9th. On September 14th, the best ideas will be showcased in Vienna. Until November, the most promising ideas will get prototyping support.
Teams will have access to a platform showcasing useful resources to progress on the idea. Webinars, check-ins, and office hours will complement the support.
Each team will have to submit a pitch-deck showcasing its idea and a pitch-video. A jury composed of company partners, experts, and mentors will evaluate the submission based on innovativeness, feasibility, challenge fit, and motivation to continue working on the idea.
No, there is no pre-requisite besides your commitment to attend the full event on the September 9th.
