This prize is for teams that wish to bring their hackathon project to market. It will be judged separately from the rest of the prizes and will favour the marketability of the idea and the proposed solution.

The first 100 people to arrive on the day will each get $100 of free cloud hosting from the awesome folks at Amazon Web Services, so get there early!
