Okay, well not really “hacking for fish”, but the name made it all too easy. We also chatted with Jake from Tome Software about some very cool stuff they’ve got going on with IoT and bicycles…

Info for the hackathon: http://fishackathon.hackernest.com/
- Participate! You can do so here. What then? You’ll need to form a team and connect to mentors. The Fishackathon community connects on the HackerNest Slack leading up to and during the event. It’s easy. Get your invite at about.hackernest.com/slack, then join the #fh04mentor and #detroit c
hannels to chat up mentors and participants, form a team, and win at life. P.S. – there’s some incredible global grand prizing at stake 😉
- Mentor! Mentors are critical as participants are general not “industry” experts. We look for mentors with varying backgrounds, like experts in fisheries management, the environment, IP law, VC’s, tech, entrepreneurs, etc. Mentors should be available most of the weekend, on and off, to connect with participants, answer questions, and help guide participants in the right direction.
- Judge! Judges can be mentors too, but they don’t have to be! Judges should be leading experts in their field, and should represent an awray of expertise, much like mentors. Judges should be available Sunday afternoon.
- Sponsor! Want to sponsor the Detroit event? Fantastic. We’ve attached the Detroit sponsorship deck here. We’re also looking for catering sponsors, prizing sponsors, and in-kind sponsors. Let us know! It’s a great way to get your brand out there, and support a worthy initiative.
Silver – this is the ‘light-touch’ sponsorship for entities that want sponsor a great event; they would love to have global exposure but might not have the capacity to have strong at-event engagement.Gold – this is everything you expect from the ‘gold standard’ of event sponsorship — a reasonable figure for strong branding and engagement opportunities at the eventPlatinum – this is the ‘look at me, look at me’ sponsorship, equivalent to us rolling out the red carpet and having a private helicopter waiting to take the sponsor to a champagne room where they can rub shoulders with celebrities; i.e. heavy branding and engagement opportunities
