This April, Startup Weekend returns to Edinburgh at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) with a special Cleanweb-themed weekend. Over 54 hours teams of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs will put their skills together to create Cleanweb startups – and pitch for real prizes at the end of the weekend.
So what is Cleanweb?
“The revolutionary growth in mobile, social, sensors, processing power, big data analytics, and other information technologies is creating powerful new opportunities to address the world’s critical resource challenges.
Individuals and organizations around the world are leveraging this web of technologies in incredibly innovative ways to optimize how we use resources across the way we live, work, and play.
Capital efficient, quick-to-market, IT-based solutions are already helping to drive smarter, more efficient energy use, enable the sharing economy, accelerate the adoption of clean technologies, and spread more sustainable behaviors globally. And just as information technology itself, the Cleanweb will continue to evolve in ways we can’t even imagine yet.
The Cleanweb is a meme, a movement, a market, and a living, viral phenomenon – and perhaps the biggest impact and economic opportunity of our time.”
