Overview

 
Need an easy way to feel like you’re on cloud 9? Join the Cloud Fest Hackathon Presented by Google Cloud, where you create themed prototypes using Google Cloud technologies and stand a chance to win amazing prizes for your stratospheric thinking! Talk about silver linings, eh? This product adoption hackathon is open for all working professionals with 6+ months of experience. This hackathon is divided into 2 phases i.e. the ‘Idea’ and ‘Prototype’ phase. The shortlisted candidates will be a part of a grand finale where they will present their stellar ideas in a virtual live presentation.

For the idea phase, please make sure that the idea you submit is your final idea, as we will be evaluating your idea as soon as it is submitted.

 
    
 
All the teams that make it to phase 2, will get free credits from Google Cloud to help you build your prototype. Please note that using Google Cloud Platform is mandatory for this hackathon. Visit the Resources page or click on the banner below for more information on how to get started.

You can either invite your friends, or colleague(s) from the same organization to form a team, or you can request other teams to add you as a member (max. 4 members per team). The preference would be to form teams with your friends/colleagues from the same organization. To participate in this hackathon, register and begin by picking one or more themes from the theme section to work on!

Themes

Note: The use of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is mandatory in your solution. Google Cloud credits will be provided to all those who are shortlisted for the prototype round.

For the idea phase, please make sure that the idea you submit is your final idea, as we will be evaluating your idea as soon as it is submitted.

Healthcare

Basic healthcare is still a dream for millions of people around the world, particularly in poor countries. For low-income families in India, decent healthcare during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early days of a newborn remains a distant dream. 

This is a prospect for young talent to be a part of the healthcare innovation adventure that will shape the future. Develop innovative and smart solutions for digital transformation in the healthcare business using the power of the Google Cloud Platform.

Financial Technology

Financial services have recently begun to see innovation, yet this industry is distinct from others. The difficulty isn't just in developing new and creative services that benefit customers or assist investors and bankers in making better decisions. People who can design fresh and creative financial solutions while also developing a cyber fort Knox are demanded in fintech. NPA management, asset recovery, risk management, and gold loans are the most popular applications.

Utilize cutting-edge technologies coupled with having a positive and significant impact on consumer-financial institution relationships, must design and build novel solutions and products for the fintech industry, using Google Cloud Platform.

Environment and Sustainability

To secure a more sustainable future, we must encourage and foster new ideas, innovative thinking, and practices that benefit society, the environment, and the economy. We invite you to come up with answers to society's most pressing environmental issues. Identify cutting-edge technological solutions to your city and energy issues. In the broad topic of energy and the environment, ideas are sought. By inventing effective solutions, you may assist in measuring and lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) effects to reduce global warming and promote a sustainable future.

Encourage energy conservation and work toward a safer environment by encouraging and guaranteeing that people have access to clean air and water. Create tools using Google Cloud Platform to track and improve the quality of the world's breathable air and water resources, for instance.

Supply Chain

Farmers in India receive only 25% of the actual value of the agri-commodity. By minimizing the most profit-consuming intermediary/processes that exist in the supply chain today, items must be mass-produced and made available to consumers. For example, farmers are hesitant to convert to organic farming nowadays due to the high cost and lack of market for their products. The current supply chain procedure is not uniform throughout India. This Hackathon invites businesses, people, and teams who have a unique concept that can improve the current process. This contribution should provide a prototype that demonstrates how this may be implemented across India and how farmers and consumers would benefit.

Although we emphasize the importance of changing India's existing supply chain model, we will set greater emphasis on solutions that can transform the entire end-to-end process, including sourcing, innovative ways to engage and bring the community, and selling the produce. We're looking for innovative thinkers to help us disrupt India's existing supply chain, using the Google Cloud Platform.

Open Innovation with GCP
