Incubate Galveston: A Collective’s Innovation Hackathon

Galveston has prominent pillars of entrepreneurship, technology, innovation and business. And, we need your big ideas!

About this event

We are seeking solutions for the following challenges:

  • Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support
  • Digital solution for regional health care delivery, from long term care, to acute response to disaster events
  • Food Shortage and Distribution

 

Participants will work in small teams with a collection of experts, entrepreneurs, students, and community members to tackle challenges presented by our sponsors, UTMB, TAMUG, and The City of Galveston. In this unique environment, we encourage all participants to use their creative thinking to develop innovative new concepts, ideas, or prototypes.

 

By the end of the Hackathon, teams will have a finished pitch or prototype for an innovative product, service, or business model. Teams will then present their idea to a panel of judges and win prizes, including presenting your solution to the City Council, and there are even cash prizes for the most innovative solution!
