TiE Silicon Valley, a not for profit organisation dedicated to “fostering entrepreneurship in the Bay Area and globally,” has announced an upcoming hackathon event focused on tackling three real-world issues within the Smart City space: smart parking, waste disposal management and water access management.

The event will begin in Jan 2016 and will last for two weeks. Winners will be invited to attend TiECon 2016, TiE’s largest annual conference, and will also have an opportunity to win prizes and publicity.

Although cities around the world face similar sustainability and climate change resilience issues, solutions are best sourced locally, TiE says. Governments, academia, developers and corporations all play a role in addressing diverse urban challenges.
