WHY DO WE HACK?

It is through unexpected meetings and the mix of skills that creative solutions are born. The purpose and objective of the Last Mile Hack is to foster innovative solutions that have a possibility to make a real impact on the world of e-commerce and logistics.

Are you a hacker?

The term hacker is often connected with the classic coder stereotype but you don’t have to be a computer genius to be a hacker. The term “hacking” was coined as a description for understanding flaws in systems and making a creative solution for them. Hackers can be active in many industries and for this event, you will be focusing on the Last Mile distribution system.

What is a hackathon?

The purpose of a hackathon is not deliver a complete solution. Rather, it functions as a meeting place where exciting ideas are generated, which often leads to new services, products and businesses that contribute to the society.

By inviting people within different parts of the distribution system we hope to create a greater understanding of how change can and should happen. At the end of the hack, some teams and ideas will be rewarded in different categories.

Participants will be divided into teams and during the event they will take part in group discussions, lectures and team exercises as well as lots of hacking hours.

And the award goes to…

The team that presents the best idea will be rewarded with 10.000 SEK. All ideas will be pitched to a jury that decides the winner.
