D.C. to Kick off ‘Gigabit’ Competition

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Office of the Chief Technology invite application developers and entrepreneurs to compete in the “Gigabit DC Challenge.”

The kickoff will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 13 at the “WeWork” on M Street in Southeast and participation is free.

Interested individuals can participate for a chance to develop and demonstrate next generation, gigabit applications addressing some of the city’s most complicated problems: traffic and a changing climate.

During the two-phased competition, semifinalists will be invited to advance their concepts and build prototypes of proposed solutions for a chance to receive or split $34,000 in award funds.

Additionally, finalists will have the opportunity to work with the D.C. government to beta-test their solutions. Participants will use an online challenge platform set up by OCTO to submit concepts, engage with District subject matter experts and communicate with fellow competitors.
