What is Hackomotive

Hackomotive is a three-day competition between innovators and entrepreneurs in the car shopping industry to re-imagine the future of car shopping. As an established, third-party automotive brand, Edmunds.com is positioned to create a trusted car shopping experience. During the competition, participants will develop their ideas into prototypes with the guidance and motivation of industry experts. On the final day, teams will pitch their products and services to a panel of judges, competing for the three cash prizes. The best of the best may be invited to continue on in Edmunds' Fastlane Accelerator program.

Hackomotive background

Why is Edmunds.com having this event?

Edmunds.com is committed to helping make car shopping easier. A car is the second biggest purchase for most consumers, and the buying process remains an unpleasant, anxiety-filled experience that has changed little even with the benefit of online resources. By recognizing, rewarding and supporting innovations happening in this area, we believe we can improve the car buying experience even more dramatically than we do with our own Web site.

Why is this a competition?

Creating an environment where the best products are rewarded drives people to perform their best and give their all.
