A NEW KIND OF AN OPEN INNOVATION EVENT THAT HELPS THE LOGISTICS ECOSYSTEM SOLVE TOUGH TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS CHALLENGES TOGETHER

WHY

 

Coronavirus crisis threw into sharp contrast profound issues that the Logistics industry has been dealing with for years, and at the same time, it highlighted critical new opportunities. A fresh perspective, new creativity, and new level of collaboration are necessary for every company and organization involved in Logistics, and Hack Logistics is the open forum for accelerating that.

 

 

ABOUT

 

Hack Logistics is an Open Innovation event aimed at creating ingenious, unorthodox solutions for everyone involved in Logistics or impacted by Logistics problems, from cities to transport companies. Its purpose is is to help you to come up with new ideas, explore new business models and new technologies, and immediately test these ideas with your fellow participants. You’ll also forge new collaborations to help you start implementing your ideas the day after the event.

IN-PERSON EVENTS FOR THE POST-COVID-19 ERA

Experience shows that online events do not provide the kind of human connection and collaborative creativity necessary for a successful innovation experience.

Hack Healthcare will take place in person with full range of precautions: number of participants within permitted limits, disposable masks and hand gels, overnight cleaning, etc.

In case tightened regulations make the events impossible on their scheduled dates, the events will be postponed by approximately 3 months.
