Animal Health Hackathon Join us for the first ever Animal Health Hackathon in the world, cohosted by the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine and Entrepreneurship at Cornell! Students from across degrees, majors and colleges at Cornell, as well as guests from select veterinary colleges, are invited to attend this weekend event to explore current trends and expanding, new market opportunities in the animal health sector. Many of these opportunities are made possible by advances in technology, both digital and material. During Friday's kick off conference, innovators and leaders, ranging from clinics, startups and academia, will present a multifaceted view of emerging trends and the future of animal health and healthcare services. The event continues on Saturday with a hackathon where teams comprised of veterinary students, business students, engineers, designers and more come together to ideate and create novel solutions in animal health. Mentors will provide feedback and guidance to teams, culminating in a project showcase on Sunday and final demos to an audience of peers, industry reps, and participants. A panel of judges will select winners and award $5,000 in cash and prizes. This is a must attend event. It will be unlike anything you've ever seen! If you'd like to attend the conference, but can't participate in the hackathon- that's OK- click sign up and select the conference only ticket. Conference/Workshop

Animal Health Hackathon (January 27-29) Cornell University's Entrepreneurship office and College of Veterinary Medicine have partnered to host the first ever Animal Health Hackathon in the world! This epic event on January 27, 28 & 29, 2017, in Ithaca NY, starts with a conference on Friday – education and inspiration – followed by a weekend of creation. This interdisciplinary event brings together students from across degrees, majors, and schools at Cornell, as well as guests from other universities, forming diverse teams to create solutions to current needs in veterinary health care. A hackathon celebrates hacking in its most positive context - using minimal resources and maximum brain power to create outside-the-box solutions ("hacks") in a constrained time frame. Hack + Marathon = Hackathon. Teams comprised of veterinary students, business students, engineers, & designers come together to create holistic, viable solutions, & compete for accolades and awards. Mentors provide feedback and guidance to teams, culminating in a project showcase on Sunday and final demos to an audience of peers, industry reps, and participants. A panel of judges selects winners. Projects may be related to software, hardware, wearables, business models, medical innovations, animal welfare and husbandry solutions, or needs of not-for-profit organizations… the sky’s the limit. The hackathon is open to all students from Cornell and other selected schools by application. Conference/Workshop
