Bringing together leaders in mobility, from industry giants to developer companies and tools, HackMobility’s goal is to inspire developers, designers, and thinkers to build new experiences in mobility. We'll bring together hackers for the event in downtown SF, giving them the tools and resources to create inspiring new products for the transportation of goods and people.

ShellSmartcar, and HERE are providing core tools from energy, connectivity, and navigation to help you build innovative solutions in the world of mobility.


Teams: Up to 4 individuals. This event is open to university students and professionals.


Prize eligibility: You must submit a project to be eligible for any of the prizes. You can submit a project for up to two tracks. Track prizes are $5000 per team per track.


Judging criteria: Hacks will be evaluated on creativity, completeness, complexity, and feasibility. For the Grand Prize, the judges will look closer at the perceived viability of value proposition & potential, notional unit economics, and social impact.


Meals: Tickets cover meals at the event only.

Challenge Statement

As population growth continues, the pressure on mobility is becoming unsustainable. Transport systems are over-crowded, traffic congestion is at an all-time high (and rising), and this is accompanied by increasing environmental and health concerns. Many remain left behind by the freedoms that transportation has afforded, unable to travel to schools, jobs, hospitals or grocery stores. We’re looking for teams that are going to solve the prevailing issues in mobility, drawing from the growing connected, autonomous, shared and electric forces.



At this event, you’re invited to build hacks to make mobility:

TRACK 1 | Green | Sponsor: HERE Technologies

From sustainable fleets, to EV charging apps, use your skills to envision a greener and more conscious world. Develop solutions that enable a reduction of the impact of mobility on climate change. .

TRACK 2 | Equitable | Sponsor: eBay Motors

How can we make transportation more accessible to everyone in society? From ride-sharing to better cheaper transit options, we can’t wait to see what you build.

TRACK 3 | Efficient | Sponsor: Goodyear Tires

How do we develop a mobility ecosystem that is as lean and well-designed as possible? From well-maintained fleets to super-fast pick-ups and drop-offs by ride-sharing companies.
