Drinks Giant Pernod-Ricard Announces Hackathon with £10,000 Prize and We Have Free Tickets For You

Pernod Ricard – Journey To The Glenlivet by Flourish Creative

A weekend focused on drinks and code, with a £10,000 prize up for grabs? This weekend, the team at The Bakery London are hosting a hackathon with drinks giant Pernod-Ricard.

Fancy a weekend developing a startup in the drinks industry, Chinwag has free tickets for the event, but don't hang about, sign up now.

The Bakery team are planning something a little different for this hackathon,

"Instead of making you compete with other awesome developers for a few days to come up with a cool idea and a bit of code that winds up going, well, let's face it, nowhere...at The Bakery, our amazing brands put up £10,000 of free follow-on funding to help develop the winner, on the basis that they want to be the very first client of your brand new tech company!!

Launching on the 27th June at a local pub (we said it would be different!), Pernod-Ricard, the global drinks company, are looking to put TEN GRAND behind the best idea that comes out of 48 hours of brainstorming and hacking, to see if they can help kickstart the next big tech company for the drinks industry.

You'll get access to their network, their data, their pubs and their amazing products. With classic brands like Chivas Regal, The Glenlivet, Malibu, Absolut and Beefeater, Pernod-Ricard is looking for ice-cool 21st century digital opportunities to help mixologise, personalise, educate and entertain their customers.

Go on, put your coding and business start-up muscles to the test! You even get to test - and taste - the products too! It'll be fun, and you could be on your way to rock-star tech-startup status with seed funding plus your first multi-national client!"

The event takes place this weekend, 27/28/29th June in and around The Bakery London on City Road in London. Use the code Chinwaggers to get your free ticket now.
