An innovation lab area that will host workshops, meetups, open discussions and has a dedicated “digital classroom area”. Digital skills and coding courses, innovation workshops and technology meetups, under the Tech Talent School initiative. Every afternoon in the US pavilion we will host a series of Innovation Talks, casual open sessions and workshops from VCs, established tech entrepreneurs and prominent figures of the wider start up innovation ecosystem.
An educational hackathon for developers, designers, business-people and marketeers that will create and develop an idea over a short intensive period of time based around a subject or technological sector. Each team has the freedom to innovate, working on a unique idea that can make a difference. Hackathons, apart from participants forming the teams, involve mentors who guide the creative and the development process and judges who decide the winners, based on their progress and final pitch.
