The Wearable World Series is back!
The Wearable World Invents, featuring the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) as its partner for the next installment, “is an ongoing series that brings big brands and bright minds together to solve real problems and follows a process that delivers real solutions to the market”.
As you may remember, we sponsored its Connected Traveler challenge back in June, and this time we’re joining in for the latest challenge: the Wearable World Invents: The Connected Airport.
The Connected Airport is “an innovative two-part developer challenge” that seeks to design and create apps that will improve the overall airport customer experience from beginning to end.
The first part of the challenge starts this week and, as Sponsors, we’ll be helping the participating teams define their ideas and bring them to life, together with other participants and expert mentors. Teams will have 24 hours to code and pitch their idea to an amazing roster of expert judges in the field.
Following those exciting 24 hours comes the “build-out” period (from 11/19 to 12/10). During that time all the teams that participated in Part 1, will be building their respective prototypes and testing functionality at SFO Terminal 2. Finally, on December 17th teams will test their apps live, for a chance to impress the judges who will carefully select the top 3 teams to receive thousands of dollars in prizes as well as the opportunity to join the next class of startups in the Wearable World Labs program in San Francisco!
