Hack in the heart of London Tech Week
With a chance to be in the heart of the action at this year’s London Tech Week, the winners will have the opportunity to present their project on the main stage of the headline event, TechXLR8. Don’t forget, HackXLR8 provides maximum exposure to the 15,000 visitors expected to be in attendance—so everyone’s a winner!
Exclusive technology from our soon to be revealed partnerships will provide developers and startups with direct access to the future of smart technology.
Come and see how developments in science and technology transform connected devices, rethink the way we travel with safer and more sustainable transportation, and positively impact our environment.
HackXLR8 is back!
Don’t miss out on being part of the action!
HackXLR8 is back for a third year in the middle of London Tech Week once again, at ExCel London!
After a really successful event last year, HackXLR8 returns with another two-day hackathon focusing on three themes: Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain.
Are you ready to take a step into the future?
The themes are set, the hack is on and the stage is waiting for you.
Can you disrupt and showcase the future of
Enterprise Innovation within IoT, AI or Blockchain?
Are you ready to take on HackXLR8 2019?
Blockchain is one of the fastest-rising and most fascinating technologies to develop in the modern-day. Understanding records-management is fundamental to the success of so many businesses, and the utilisation of a secure, distributed ledger brings transparency and greater understanding of how organisations source their goods and materials. What opportunity is waiting to be taken? What market untouched?
Machines are constantly learning, growing more intelligent, pre-empting our decisions to waste less time, and are giving us the information (or service) before we’ve even asked for it. How can this change the way in which organisations operate? How can we harness this technology to improve business processes?
Internet of Things
The way we live our day-to-day lives is perpetually changing with interconnectivity.
With our offices, homes, and devices all growing more intelligent, how can an enterprise harness innovation to change the marketplace forever? IoT has transformed the customer experience, now it’s time to see how it can change the world of enterprise.
This time at HackXLR8 you’ll be choosing from one of the three challenges listed below. We don’t just want something generic to IoT, AI, or Blockchain, your challenge is to build a digital solution that will really elevate a business enterprise.
