First Tri-campus Hackathon at University of Toronto – Scarborough, Mississauga, St. George

Would you believe me if I told you about an event that lasted three days, had students from diverse disciplines from three different campuses, and was hosted in three different locations spanning  50 km?

Well, last weekend, three accelerators from the University of Toronto collaborated for an event that was just that. The Hub from UTSC, I-CUBE from UTM, and Department of Computer Science Innovation Lab (DCSIL) from St. George co-hosted a three-day tri-campus hackathon for their accelerator members. The hackathon, BLUE3, was put together thanks to the support from all three accelerators and the Banting & Best Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

During the three-day event, participants attended workshops and sessions on a variety of topics such as SCRUM methodologies, customer development, website construction, angular JS and more. DCSIL also brought technical experts to help teams one-on-one with specific problems pertaining to their tech.

After a grueling three days, each team pitched in front of judges and were evaluated based on their idea, presentation delivery, product demo, and creativity. Congratulations to the top three winners:

First Place: ParticipAid, from I-CUBE

Second Place: Oshi, from DCSIL

Third Place: Ecoden, from I-CUBE
