The challenge

Travel Hack is a 36 hour hackathon with focus on tourism and travel. The challenge? Leverage technology (blockchain, IoT, mobile) to create compelling value propositions. Finalists are invited to Paris by Welcome City Labs.

Validate your business idea

During the course of the hackathon your team will build an MVP (minimum viable product). MVPs are experiments that startups use to test products and business ideas.
