Smart City hackathons

Young adults shaping their future.

Worked in collaboration with: Houston Planning Commission and the Black Houston Symposium at Rice University 

Our Hackathon/Design Sprint methodology

Developed first at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a tried-and-true method for finding solutions to challenges. Bringing that methodology to students, you create teams of 2-8 to develop, validate and engineer solutions to problems in our communities. All this takes place in one high intensity and productive weekend where each team has 24-48h to produce a solution. We call them "Hackathons"!
