About Hackathon

Mumbai Startup Fest Hackathon takes you on a new voyage of the hack with talented teams of developers, designers, and data scientists solving the biggest problems of Mumbai.

The world is evolving at a fast pace. Mumbai is one of the most busiest cities in the world with more than 1.8 crore citizens no wonder buying a car is easier, but driving it isn’t. With MSF Hackathon, we are trying to solve small and big problems with simple ideas and execution by the students and young startups.

While Mumbai’s Infrastructure lags behind in using advanced technology, there is a great prospect and aspiration among Mumbaikars to bring the city in line with the rest of the world. MSF Hackathon is one such place where deterministic young minds come together to render smooth solutions to its customers, making their experience hassle-free.

This 16-hour long hackathon focuses on the everyday problem of the city from traveling, food, sewage, education and much more as it relates to developing the city of the future. It blends innovation with creativity and constructs solutions to the problems in the areas such as the economic travel options, customers survey complaints, customers experience, travel and tourism, software and API, IOT and robotics and marketing, making your experience peerless and one of a kind.
