Converge Labs’ launches the Big Brand Hackathon

Accelerating innovation by bringing together buyers, sellers and partners to produce actionable ideas and build relationships

The Home Depot participated as both a sponsor and participant in the first ever Big Brand Hackathon. We went into the event enthusiastic and eyes wide open, not knowing exactly what to expect. Our expectations were more than met as we had an opportunity to spend two action packed days engaging with bright, young, creative app developers who expanded our minds as it relates to the art of the possible for leveraging apps to enhance our emotional connection with our customers.

The most amazing outcome was the fact that the award winning app developed by a senior in high school. We could not have been more pleased with the entire experience.

Attending the SoLoMo conference was icing on the cake to a great Big Brand Hackathon weekend. The event was high energy with lots of relevant panel discussions discussing the current and future state of SoLoMo. The attendees were very engaged and there was sufficient time for ideation amongst the attendees.
