We welcome individual and team sign ups! If you don’t have a pre-formed team, RSVP as an individual. Teams will be finalized on Friday during the event and we very much welcome individuals to join. 

The Coalition for Healthy Campus Food and Beverages will hold an hackathon/designathon to think out the next ten years of beverage service at UC Berkeley. This case competition challenges you to think at the intersection of health and business—considering human and planetary health as well as financial sustainability and corporate responsibility. UC Berkeley is near the end of an exclusive pouring rights contract with PepsiCo, and the results of this designathon will help shape the future of beverage options on Berkeley’s campus.

Location: Berkeley Haas Innovation Lab
