#RESIhackathon is a tech led event designed to develop innovative solutions for residential schemes. Taking place on the exhibition floor, the hack brings together start-ups, developers, designers, trainees, apprentices, agents and graduates to collaborate during the RESI Convention, with delegates invited to contribute to the solution.
The winning team will have the chance to present their prototype to the top decision makers in the UK residential sector, they will receive great PR and exposure, as well as taking home £1000! There will also be a second prize of £500.
The 2018 Challenge
Promoting the new generation of rental to Generation Rent
For years, the rental market has had a bad reputation, blighted by sub-standard accommodation and the actions of a few rogue landlords and problem tenants. But recently, rental housing has improved dramatically with the advent of build to rent (BTR), which has transformed the sector and professionalised it.
Unfortunately, negative perceptions persist. We are challenging this year's Hackathon participants to come up with a tech-based solution to the rental market's image problem that promotes the new generation of housing to generation rent, improves the sector's image or improves the rental accommodation itself.
Key areas for consideration for this challenge include: Community engagement, community facilities/services, health & wellbeing, lifestyle, affordability, co-living, landlord tenant communication, quality, branding
