Hacker Lab, a Silicon valley-style tech startup incubator located in Midtown, is hosting “Cereal Hack 3” this weekend. The event will feature teams who will work together over 30 hours to create a hardware or software product. The best teams win cash prizes and you gotta think probably some attention from the Nor Cal startup scene. Oh, and I think there might be free breakfast cereals.
The event has big sponsors in the local tech sector, like Intel and VSP, as well as lots of interest from Bay Area firms like Apigee.
Hacker Lab runs a cool space and offers tons of events for the geek-minded, including events for kids that I keep meaning to try out. Their vision:
We believe that technology can change the world and the starting point is education. Hacker Lab aims to educate folks and seed startups with community-driven resources. Collectively we can build a brighter future using lean methods in both education and business.
