HQ Raleigh and Forward Impact are proud to host the second annual NC DataPalooza! The open-data competition connects local experts, innovators, and entrepreneurs to relevant, clean data drawn from federal, state, and local resources.
This open data is used to develop applications and solutions that catalyze positive community and economic impact. This year's event will focus on using open data to spark innovation in the healthcare industry.
By hosting NC DataPalooza for the second year in a row, the Triangle will be recognized as a center for open data, collaboration, and entrepreneurial innovation, furthering our goal to make this region a top five entrepreneurial community in the country.
After receiving some great feedback last year, this year's NC DataPalooza will take a much more data-first approach. We've organized a talented open data task force and plan to host a "boot camp" data event prior to the kickoff in early May!
The 90-day competition will get into full swing at the end of May leading up to a one-month accelerator for the Top 3 teams in early August. We'll choose a winner at a big celebration in Fall 2014. More details and event schedule are coming soon.
