Screenshot 2016-08-16 15.41.34.png

Dear Data Science Community members,

Hope you are ALL doing great! With this message, we are pleased to inform you of the upcoming Consumer Goods Hackathon, which will take place on Aug 30th– 31st in our innovation campus in Strombeek-Bever.

Together with several other large non-competing companies, we are organizing a 2 day digital disruption hackathon for consumer goods. Deloitte is leading and currently AB-Inbev, ING, Eggsplore, bpost and P&G are joining from large companies. Other companies are still considering to join.

The large companies will share their challenges in 1.digital disruption on business models and approaches, 2. production processes and 3. packaging. Start-ups/SME’s will share and collaborate (in teams) on novel disruptive solutions. If desired, the larger companies can work own projects with interested start-ups /SME’s after the event. 2D sketching, 3D printing and film/animation support will be provided on site for the teams to build their proposition.

Participation to the event is free of charge. This is the website with further details, with the specific business challenges for each of the 3 topics and for registration: consumergoodshackathon .

For practical reasons, it’s required that participants register individually and specify which challenge they would like to work on. (click challenges to see the full list).

It would be great if you could spread the word and pass on the website address to specific start-ups in your network which you find relevant for the defined spaces.

Let me know if you have further questions or want to talk this with the broader team.

Thanks in advance and looking forward to your feedback.

Best regards.

Benjamin Bollot @P&G
