Living the dream of an entrepreneur Hack.SiliconValley

Think it. Build it. Test it.

On the 5th and 6th of November the fifth hackathon of DigitalLife Campus took place in Silicon Valley, jointly organized by the Business Innovation Team of Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America, Mercedes-Benz Vans and DigitalLife@Daimler. Once again the participants demonstrated the enormous potential of that event. 7 teams, consisting of students and young professionals, worked on the topics “cloud data and internet of things for future transportation” and developed remarkable ideas & prototypes and further presented them in well prepared pitches – within 24 hours! Algorithms, cloud data and machine learning were hereby only some parts of the hackathon. Even though all teams impressed with their results, there can be only one champion. This time it was team “MBarc” with an app to optimize fleet management. For us it was a pleasure to be part of that event, the last hackathon of the global DigitalLife Campus Series… in 2016…
