about mixed team
During the hackathon, we bring together select participants to form teams comprising of people from Japan and Boston. These ‘mixed teams’ are an exciting collaboration opportunity to hone your multi-cultural perspective and entrepreneurial mindset since team-members work collaboratively across the ocean.
Each mixed team consists of about 5-8 participants from Japan and Boston (i.e. 3 from Japan, 3 from Boston) from very different cultural, technical and professional backgrounds. The participants from Japan will join you via communication tool such as Google Hangout and Skype.
