Fail fast, learn fast: a marathon becomes a sprint
With Loomr Sprints we bring together experienced and professional data experts from service providers, companies, associations and NGOs in a two-weeks sprint to develop customized solutions that are professionally tailored to the current challenges of the industry.
Your solution in six steps
Within two weeks, participants have to develop functional prototypes and describe a business model (here already the first difference to classic 48h hackathons) for challenges that were previously defined by the relevant industry.
In average we receive 300 to 400 applications, but we only run this sprints with 60-100 people. One must-have is that the finales of loomr.io should taking place during an industry relevant conference. We call it "Bring the nerds out of the basement into the limelight", in order to create a haptic experience for all decision makers in an industry to this fair, what digitization and data science looks like in real life.
