We’re back in Iceland for another hackathon and Startup Iceland

A year after digi.me launched a living lab project allowing Icelandic citizens to become the first country in the world to get digital copy of their health data, we’re back in the country with a new hackathon and a speaker slot at Startup Iceland.

We first ran an Iceland hackathon last year, and it was so successful that we have once again teamed up with AngelHack and Startup Iceland for Data Hack Iceland 2018.

Teams of up to five have until 1pm tomorrow to create something cool for one or all of three core challenges.

The digi.me challenge is looking for a cool innovative app using digi.me’s Consent Access platform, with a focus on wearables and finance.

Challenge and overall prizes include flights and tickets to Slush in Helsinki in December, as well as the chance to get an invite into AngelHack’s HACKcelerator program as well as cash and Azure credits from Microsoft.

Then on Thursday, it’s the turn of Startup Iceland – where we are a principal sponsor – to take centre stage.

A thriving community, this event is always thought-provoking, and speakers this year include our very own founder and Executive Chairman Julian Ranger, on the theme of Back2Basics.

More from us soon – but it’s shaping up to be a fascinating few days.
