FAQs

What can I build?

Anything! That is, anything travel focused. Build a site, mobile app, use hardware, anything your mind can think of. Your goal is to build something that has the potential to reinvent travel, you decide what form that takes. We'll give you four challenges to follow: inspire travel to Brazil, simplify travel during the Rio 2016 Olympics, demonstrate your app has the most business potential, or be chosen by other participants (People's Choice).

How large can the teams be?

Teams can be as small as 1 individual or as large as 5 members.

What if I don’t have a team?

No problem. There will be many others who don’t either, we will help you guys form teams.

Who owns my project & IP?

You do. You develop it, you own it.

What if I want to take my project further and launch it in the market?

Awesome, we love it. We will support you in any way we can. We’ll have some great startup packages and prizes from us and our partners that you can take advantage of.

Can I start developing my app beforehand?

The actual coding has to be done during the Destination Hack Brasil event. You can start brainstorming, designing, creating wireframes – but you have to start the coding at the beginning of the hackathon. We want to make sure it’s fair for everyone.

Do you supply computers or do we need to bring our own?

You need to bring your own computer, we will not be providing any computers or monitors.

Can I attend just to watch the event?

No, you need to join or be part of a team who is building something during the hackathon. Unfortunately we do not have enough space for attendees outside of those who are directly participating in the event. If you are interested in coming onboard as a sponsor contact us to learn more.
