The BizTech Virtuathon is more than your ordinary hackathon event – it is the product of synergies between an Engineering (UTMIST) and a Commerce student club (RCEO) seeking to create a universal, multidisciplinary experience for all students at the University of Toronto. Our mission is to encourage STEM and business students to collaborate by applying their respective practical strengths to developing a solution to a real-world case. This year marks the first iteration of the BizTech Virtuation in partnership with our corporate sponsor FlyBits who will be presenting a company-relevant problem, and they look forward to evaluating the creative submissions that talented teams will come up with by the end of the hackathon.
Throughout the week, workshops will be held by RCEO, UTMIST, and external thought leaders to provide hackers the opportunity to review/develop technical topics such as Python basics and machine learning, as well as professional skills such as pitching and deck building.
Participants will be required to submit the slide deck that you will be using during presentation on Devpost. Each team’s entire presentation should be no more than 5-10 minutes long so that the judges can watch all presentations and make a fair judgment. During each team’s presentation, team members should discuss the sub-sector that the team has chosen to tackle, and how the solution developed will improve that area. In addition, each team can submit a link to the code which the team has written to develop your product, as well as a short video where the team can demo their project (just in case something goes wrong during the live presentation).
