MoveHack 2018: Global Mobility Hackathon by NITI Aayog
NITI Aayog is organizing MoveHack 2018, a global mobility hackathon to
crowdsource solutions aimed at the future of mobility in India.
Envisaged to be one of the largest hackathons globally, Move Hack is
focused on 10 themes and structured over three legs: online, followed by
Singapore leg, and the finals in New Delhi.
MoveHack aims to bring about innovative, dynamic, and scalable solutions
to problems pertaining to mobility. The hackathon has a two-pronged
campaign approach: (a) ‘Just Code It’, aimed at solutions through
innovations in technology/product/software and data analysis, and (b)
‘Just Solve It’, innovative business ideas or sustainable solutions to
transform mobility infrastructure through technology.
Move Hack is open to individuals of all nationalities, making it a truly
global hackathon. Registrations are open at https://www.movehack.gov.in.
The top 30 teams from the online submissions will travel to Singapore
for two days (1 and 2 Sep 2018) and will be mentored by a curated group
of top experts advising the teams on a host of parameters including
design improvement, business viability, technical solution and customer
targeting/marketing. The top 20 teams from Singapore leg will
participate in the Final Round to be held in New Delhi on 5 and 6 Sep
The winners will be announced during the Move Summit 2018, which is also
organized by NITI Aayog on 7 and 8 Sep 2018 in New Delhi
(http://movesummit.in/) and is being inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime
Minister of India. Awards for the hackathon include recognizing top 10
winners, with a total prize of more than Rs. 2 crores.
In addition, what sets this hackathon apart is that it provides a unique
opportunity for end-to-end integration of solutions in Smart Cities,
States and Central Ministries through commercial implementation.
MoveHack is especially focused on attracting the best minds across the
globe. India has some of the most diverse problem contexts in the world,
and if you can solve for India, you can solve for the world.
