TfL, AWS and Geovation Hack Week – Data in Motion #1

Join us for a Hack Week launching on 23 September in London in partnership with AWS and Geovation to provide some great products for transport users. The use of our open data sets are fuelling entrepreneurship, accelerating scientific discovery, and enabling Londoners and visitors to travel more easily across the capital.

This Hack Week provides the opportunity to win some great prizes, including 6 months worth of support i.e. office space, business mentoring, access to technical and subject matter experts. So, whether you’re a start-up or a developer, if you are in a position to develop a product that addresses the challenges outlined below, you should join us at the launch event on 23 September. All entries will be judged by a panel in a closed environment to protect your idea.

There are over 500 apps powered by TfL data used by millions of people every day – we would like to see more.
