inDrive, the global mobility and urban services platform, is inviting tech innovators worldwide to participate in its first annual global hackathon, inCode 2023, with a chance to win up to €16,000 in prizes. The hackathon aims to discover new ways to make ride-hailing services safer and more inclusive, and improve transportation options for inner and inter-city trips and the delivery of goods.
Participants can register teams of up to six members and submit their ideas to the competition, which is divided into two phases. The first phase begins on April 20 and ends on June 4, 2023, where participants will submit their ideas and general concepts in the format of PowerPoint/ Keynote presentations.
The second phase begins on June 19 and ends on July 9, 2023, where participants will deliver their prototypes to compete for the prizes. The best prototypes in each of the three categories – safety, accessibility, and technology – will win prizes of €750, €1,500, and €3,000, respectively. Entries will be judged by inDrive experts on idea, impact, code quality, UX/UI quality, and feasibility.
The hackathon will be hosted on the industry-leading HackerEarth platform, which has a community of 7.6 million developers globally. More than 500 companies have conducted online hackathons with HackerEarth.
According to Alexander Lobashev, Senior VP of Engineering at inDrive, “inCode is a way for inDrive to recognize the tech innovators who invest their time and talent to make ride-hailing safer, more inclusive, and better to use. We at inDrive are excited to see what ideas emerge from our first annual hackathon.
