Last week TECHHOUSE had the great pleasure to host the very first MOBILATHON in Graz, where teams hacked new business models for e-charging, and dive deep into the world of visual analytics and machine learning to identify defects on wooden surfaces, which can be used as sustainable alternatives in the mobility sector, within 48 hours.
“The results the teams achieved over the last 48 hours have blown our minds and will offer us great insights to further develop our own approaches. The fact that TECHHOUSE was able to reach top international talents with its network was key here.”, said Fill’s challenge mentors Sophie Binder and Manuel Hofbauer reflected after the final pitches of the teams.
In addition to getting amazing new viewpoints and well-developed prototypes, the hackathon also offered partners and participants the opportunity to connect in an inspiring setting, identify top-talents, and present the innovative environment that future employees can expect.
