Join the MindSphere Open Space Challenge & be part of the pitch at Hannover Messe 2018.

Are you keen on participating in a high-level developing competition at Hannover Messe 2018, one of the worlds biggest industrial tradeshows, and show us your innovation and development skills? Choose from one of the eleven challenges submitted by our top industrial partners and find smart ways and new approaches to solving their real challenges. Help for example Dieffenbacher to add some fun elements into a Smartphone-based Maintenance Ticket system, Rittal to find a smart approach on maintenance of cooling devices for electronic enclosures, or help world-class Football club FC Bayern Munich to improve the pitch quality for their football matches.

There are a lot more challenges and customers waiting for your ingenuity and brainpower and we can’t wait for you to surprise us with your ideas. We open this up to everybody so rally your teammates, friends, and colleagues, apply today and download all the challenges from our dedicated challenge website once you submitted your registration. We are not looking for ready made solutions, instead we are looking for innovative ideas that you would be up to creating with our industry customers.

    • Industry awareness for your persuasive developers’ pitch
    • Networking options within the developer community
