Support from mentors
During these two intensive days, five mentors were on hand to support the digital natives as they worked on their projects. At the end of the Hackathon, the students were evaluated by their peers and by their mentors. Ten teams were selected as finalists. "The judging panel consisted of the Wild Code School, SKEMA academics, alumni and even some students whose businesses are being incubated at SKEMA Ventures," said Maria Olmedilla Fernandez.
Lille lifts the trophy
The winners were a 100% female group of students from Lille. They created an application to identify a safe route for lone women who need to travel through unsafe areas. A mini-map helps users to find their way around and call for help if they need it.
