Only 6% of the Brazil population have broadband in their home. However, ownership of mobile phones is at 115% of the population (more than one per person), of which 82% are “feature phones” rather than smartphones. There is a big need to create services and opportunities for this audience.
To make progress toward this goal, BlueVia has organized a hackathon with Evernote and Wayra to generate new ideas and services, specially focused in feature phones users. Bluevia and Evernote will be present on the day to help with the hacking.
The Hackathon will be organized around these two services that BlueVia and Evernote offer, and projects will have to integrate both to compete.
If you want to participate, you can gather a 3 people (max) group , click on the link below and send us your proposal. Hackathon will take place 26th and 27th of May. Wayra academy in Sao Paulo will host the event.
Awards will be delivered for people with the best ideas but the most important thing for the developer is that he’ll be able to make that service accessible to millions of people and make them able to access to all the information that’s on the internet that they can’t access right now.
