#RESIhackathon in partnership with Auriens and Be My App 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 £1,750! There will also be a second prize of £750.
The 2019 Challenge
Later-living solutions that benefit the whole community
The paradox of living in the age of social media is that in the physical world we seem to be becoming more antisocial. The elderly are more socially alienated than they have ever been. Technology and the emergence of increasingly intergenerational, multi-tenure and mixed-use schemes present a real opportunity to reconnect and integrate them with their wider communities and to create smart home or communication solutions that not only address their specific needs but make everyone’s life easier. This year’s participants are being challenged to develop later-living tech solutions that benefit the whole community.
Delegates are invited to Join the hackers and lend their expertise at the RESI Convention located in the marketplace.
