The creative minds of students spanning the gamut of engineers, scientists, programmers, urban planners and MBAs from MIT, Harvard, Tufts, Babson, and others will be collaborating on innovative new ideas for solutions to problems in four main areas: Urban Agriculture, Food Waste, Financing Sustainable Food and Ag, and Local Food Systems. There will also be an overarching theme of using big data and analytics. We have organized two panels on Tuesday April 15th and Wednesday April 23rd, where representatives from industry, startups, and local government will speak about some of the outstanding problems needing solutions. The main event will start at 8AM with a kickoff of ideas brainstorming, followed by team formations. There will be mentors helping teams throughout the day, as they work on business plans or prototyping. The event will culminate in a 2-minute pitch to a panel of judges, after which over $5000 in prize money will be awarded!
