BMW Sustainability Hackathon

The BMW Sustainability Hackathon was a great success!! 2 prize winners used the CSRHub API, Wastegram & GreenCuisine.

The BMW Sustainabilty Hackathons look for technical as well as non-technical people to build apps, mobile apps and hacks to address some of the most pressing problems in sustainability facing our future as a greener planet.

CSRHub was pleased to support the April Sustainability Hackathon. It was hosted by BMW Group Technology Office USA in Mountain View, CA. The event was a huge success, with 15 app submissions, and over $3000 given away in prizes!

Ronan Brennan from the BMW Group told us, “We surveyed the hackers and 2 submissions claimed use of CSRHub's APIs and both were prizewinners!”
