 With $125,000 of prize money on the line, it’s definitely worth a shot!  A weekend’s worth of work is all that is required for this contest, so no need to quit your day job.

2) Infrastructure (Bentley sponsored) – build a mobile app for inspecting bridges

3) Water & Utilities (BFTP/SEP sponsored) – build a mobile app for water quality

 Submissions are due by April 19.

  • Up to three months of desk space, business support and advisory services at VentureF0rth, a healthcare-focused incubator in Philadelphia
