Join for a chance to win up to €4,000 and other incredible prizes at Startupbootcamp's hackathon taking place at the intersection between transportation and technology!

For the third time Rainmaking Loft Berlin is opening its doors to the hottest hackathon in town powered by Startupbootcamp Smart Transportation and Energy programme, now skyrocketing its 2nd batch!

It will be a weekend full of spectacular surprises, top notch mentors, speakers, judges and incredible prizes. Partners of the calibre of Deutsche Bahn, Airbus, Cisco, Nokia HERE, Mercedes Benz, EnBW, Uber, AWS, Vinci and TNT will give out their secret data for you to get creative and come up with the next big thing.

All of this will take place in the awesome office space at Rainmaking Loft Berlin where we have everything you could wish for: a pro-kitchen, relaxation area, Skype booths, meeting rooms, an auditorium, a shower, tons of power sockets, ethernet cable, and much more. Plus, we will have food, snacks and drinks so your body is energized 100% of the time. 

In case you want to have an idea of how all this will look like, just have a look at this quick clip from last year's hackathon https://vimeo.com/99324343.
