The Branchfood Hackathon is an educational technology event uniting designers, developers, engineers, food system experts, and entrepreneurs to create innovative tools that improve our food ecosystem. The event is being held in partnership with General Assembly and WeWork in Fort Point on Friday evening, November 14th and all day Saturday, November 15th. The event will focus on problems in our current food system that can be helped by technology, specifically related to institutional food, restaurant tech, and urban farming. Content experts from Boston’s leading institutions, restaurants and farms will present on challenges they face in their specific realms and work with teams to create solutions. We’ll also have other food system experts present to help teams with their product development. On Saturday night teams will pitch to a panel of judges and the winner will be awarded a $5K prize from Breville. Other teams will receive prizes for the best use of the APIs. Attendance will be upwards of 150 people.
