On March 22 Shelter Scotland, Product Forge and Safe Deposit Scotland will be hosting their “Generation Rent Hackathon”; a space where technical and entrepreneurial minds will collaborate with the third sector to develop new ideas that improve the renting experience.
The Hackathon focuses on tackling the Scottish renting crisis by having teams of designers, developers, students and sector experts work together to develop innovative products, services or tools that will solve challenges in the private renting sector
Participants will be given access to data sets from Shelter Scotland, Helpline and National Records of Scotland and will use this information to develop analytical tools that will help log, track and resolve issues between tenants, landlords, letting agents and local authorities.
The event will include 10 free meals, mentoring, networking opportunities and post event support for entrepreneurs interested in expanding their ideas through a start up.
If you are interested in data analytics, hoping to network with politicians and entrepreneurs or just want to solve a problem that impacts real people every day, make sure to sign up for this years Generation Rent Hackathon.
