Geeklist and our partners at Innospring in Santa Clara and TusPark Shanghai are thrilled to announce that we will be holding the first-ever US-China hackathon on May 4th-5th. This is huge, and you are definitely going to want to be here to join in!
We will have leading technology and startup investors judging and winning companies may even get their ideas funded! Great Oaks VC along with TEEC Angels will both be judging!
Winners will get 6 months of free desk space at the new incubator Innospring, a brand new iPad and much much more!
We will have one full-on, 24-hour hackathon going on at InnoSpring in Santa Clara and a partner hackathon going on at the same time at KIC (Knowledge and Innovation Community / 创智天地) in Yangpu district in Shanghai. And that’s not even the best part: We are also going to enable cross-border teams with both US and Chinese members to work together on projects of their choosing, and present them after 24 hours to an awesome panel of judges in both the US and Shanghai!
Come JOIN US on May 4th-5th for an incredible 24 hours of global cooperation and innovation with top developers from the 21st century’s two most important countries!
