DESCRIPTION

InnoSpring, Geeklist and our partners at TusPark Shanghai are thrilled to announce that we will be holding the first-ever US-China hackathon on May 4th-5th.  This is huge, and you are definitely going to want to be here to join in!
We will have leading technology and startup investors judging, and winning teams/companies might even get their ideas funded!  There will also be a bunch of awesome PRIZES, including Apple gear/iPads, free office/desk space at the InnoSpring incubator, cash, and a whole lot of other great stuff.  Snacks, drinks of all kinds, food/meals, places to rest, and most other things you need will be provided as well, thanks to our sponsors!
 
We will have one full-on, 24-hour hackathon going here at InnoSpring in Santa Clara and a partner hackathon going on at the same time at KIC (Knowledge and Innovation Community / 创智天地) in Yangpu district in Shanghai.  And that’s not even the best part:  We are also going to enable cross-border teams with both US and Chinese members to work together on projects of their choosing, and present them after 24 hours to an awesome panel of judges in both the US and Shanghai!

Come JOIN US on May 4th-5th for an incredible 24 hours of global cooperation and innovation with top developers from the 21st century’s two most important countries!
