Event description

Description

Have you got a great idea and don't know where to start? Are you looking for a platform to test your idea?

We need your help to develop social solutions for Liverpool.

Liverpool City Council is partnering with Vibewire to host Spark South West: Startup Weekend – Hack 4 Liveability.

Hear local stakeholders pitch their wicked challenges and help make Liverpool a better place to live.

A startup weekend, like a hackathon, is an event run over an intensive period of time where people come together to solve a problem, develop a solution and end with a product or prototype.

Liverpool City Council has also begun the installation of an Internet of Things network. Council is using the network to understand air quality and people and vehicle numbers in the city centre. The network is freely available to anyone to use within range of the gateways. This means that anyone can set up sensors and use the gateways to transmit data to the internet.

We are looking for ideas and ways:

  • that community can use the network
  • we can use air quality and people/vehicle counting
  • we can use knowledge about the number of smart devices in the area

The event will coincide with NSW Small Business Month and will aim to promote small business growth through innovation that improves resilience and boosts productivity.
