What to Expect?

您能期待什么?

Together with Huawei Germany, Startup Grind Beijing has teamed up with Startup Grind University Beijing and German Innovators in China to organize an IDEATHON Weekend!

The goal of the IDEATHON is to encourage young professionals from various cultural backgrounds to exchange insights while developing innovative and creative solutions for challenges faced by man today.

Join us on the weekend of September 7th, as we share a unique experience with 20 German students from top universities carefully selected by Huawei Germany.

创业磨坊北京联合创业磨坊大学北京、德国创新者中国部分与华为德国合作共同举办周末创意马拉松!

创意马拉松的目标是鼓励来自不同文化背景的年轻专业人士交流见解,同时为当今人类面临的挑战制定创新和创造性的解决方案。

9月7日和8日这个周末,我们将与华为德国精心挑选的20名顶尖大学的德国学生分享48小时的独特体验。

What is an IDEATHON?

什么是创意马拉松?

Similar to a hackathon, an IDEATHON is a less intense alternative that is more suitable for startups and young entrepreneurs. It is a golden opportunity for students to learn directly from experienced mentors while showcasing their fresh and creative ideas in front of a panel of judges.

与黑客马拉松类似,创意马拉松是一种不那么激烈的选择,更适合初创企业和年轻创业者。这是一个黄金的机会,学生可以直接从经验丰富的导师那里学习,同时在评委面前展示他们新鲜和创造性的想法。

The top 3 winning teams can also expect a ton of cool prizes. They also stand a chance to bring home 5000RMB in cash and Huawei P30 PRO phones!

Plus, we have prepared a plethora of food and light bites to accompany you as you develop your idea with your team!

排名前三的团队还可以获得很多很酷的奖品。他们还有机会赢取5000元现金和华为P30 PRO手机!

另外,我们准备了大量的食物和轻食,为你和你的团队进行创新时提供支持!

The Challenges

挑战

#1 Digital fight against climate change.

Climate change is growing into a worldwide disaster. From rising sea levels to shifting weather patterns, the impacts of climate change are global and can lead to unfavorable conditions.

In this challenge, your team's task is to develop a digitally sustainable solution to improve the fight against climate change.

You can go bold by thinking of a revolutionary solution. Or you can play it safe by providing an easier solution that could be implemented by anyone in their day-to-day life.

#2 Globalization 2.0:

Breaking the language and culture barrier by using AI technology.

Whether you have been in Beijing for a while, or only a few days, you must have faced a language and culture barrier during your first interaction with the native residents.

In this challenge, your team's task is to use AI technology, to find a way to bypass language and culture barriers. Your solution needs to be the answer to make any foreigner’s life easier while adapting to a new country. Think of it as a solution to take out the guesswork of "is this right or not".

#3 Digit the *** out of your student life.

Think of all the struggles you endured as a student. The list is presumably endless and could probably include a few of these: narrow curriculum diversity, little financial aid, few student activities, adult life reality kicking in, lack of support to start your own business, a limited number of resources for your entrepreneurial mind, and so on.

According to you, what would have been a tremendous help for a smoother start into the journey of student life?

In this challenge, your team's task is to create a digital solution that you wished you had when you started? Get together with your team, compare, scale, and help the future entrepreneurial minds reach the stars!

#4 Smart City

How do you make a city smart? By using technology – in particular, the Internet of Things (IoT).

The concept of smart cities is an emerging trend and brings many benefits. However, many still face struggles when it comes to deploying the smart city concept effectively. This is often related to challenges with digital security.

In this challenge, your team is required to create a digital solution. This solution should not only improve the efficiency but the effectiveness of IoT in building a smart city

#5 Open Challenges

This is the challenge where you get to showcase your diversity and creativity. It's your time to shine.

In this challenge, your task is to use your team’s diverse background to brainstorm over a problem that is recurrent to every team member, and that could be easily solved with a digital innovative solution. Let your imagination go above and beyond, and use your team’s strength to help the community.
