Can we sign up as a team?

Yes, you can sign up as a team or as an individual. A team has a maximum of five people. If you are fewer than five you can still sign up as a team but you might be combined with some other participants at the hack. This is because we want to create diverse teams with different backgrounds and competencies.

What is the purpose of the hack?

The purpose is to create solutions on the big challenges the last mile distribution system is facing. By gathering several people from different parts of the system we will get a more holistic approach in our understanding and by so, hopefully creating more sustainable solutions.

Can I pick a certain challenge?

Yes, a few weeks in advance we will ask you to choose one of the challenges that you would like to focus on.

What is the final product?

We don’t know. The main idea with the hackathon is to create the solutions on place. The solutions could be a digital service, a physical product or an abstract idea. You will not need to finish the product but you will make a presentation of it.

Do I need to attend during the whole time?

No, but the more time you spend on the challenges the better solutions. If you will arrive late, or need to leave early, please contact calle@lastmilehack.com.

Should I prepare something in advance?

No, there is no need to prepare a solution . Of course, you can prepare by thinking about the challenges. We will send out more information as we get closer but the solutions are created during the hack.

Is there something we forgot to clarify?

Send an email to calle@lastmilehack.com and we will do our best to answer you.
