Volunteers on N3XTCODER Hackathon for Supply Chain Transparency 2018

15 ventures, 15 solutions that leverage social impact.

Take your chance to be one of 300 creative minds redefining supply chain transparency

Over 85% say they would recommend this event to a friend, 93% of volunteers say they would come again.

The transparency of the supply chain is a major issue for brands and companies. Consumers are demanding more information on topics such as ethical labour regulation and environmental impact and the status quo cannot provide this.

Success Stories from HackSCT18

Minespider Logo

Minespider is a blockchain protocol for responsible mineral sourcing. They offer transparency and traceability at every stage of the supply-chain and track fungible minerals directly from certified mines. While others are building private, permissioned trials, they are decentralizing and decriminalizing the mineral supply chain. With numerous pilot programs in the works, Minespider is set to transform a multi-billion dollar industry.

TolaData logo

Toladata enables organizations to create positive impact. The Mercy Corps team in Afghanistan wanted to improve how they monitored their programs. They wanted to automate their data collection, consolidation and reporting. They built a solution that met their needs and kept the system open source to share knowledge and learnings with the wider NGO community.

Open Apparel Registry Logo

Open Apparel Registry (OAR) is an open source tool which maps garment facilities worldwide and assigns a unique ID number to each. It is a go-to source for identifying apparel facilities and their affiliations by collating disparate supplier lists from industry stakeholders into one central, open source map and database. The collated database of facility names, addresses and affiliated parties is powered by an advanced name and address-matching algorithm and is available for use by any organization, for free.

Haelixa logo

Haelixa is a multi-award winning spinoff of ETH Zurich innovation and entrepreneurship labs, where they developed the Haelixa technology since 2012. They design and manufacture a unique DNA tracer to be assigned to each individual product, model or batch. The tracers are applied to products and materials at any step of the supply chain by the customers themselves. The labelling assigns the item a unique "DNA identity". At any point in time, the product is submitted to a quick "paternity test" and results are uploaded to the cloud. The test can be conducted at Haelixa laboratories or on-site.

Following on from the major success of last year's Supply Chain Transparency series, we teamed up with Adidas AG, Deutsche Bahn AG, Volkswagen Group and Zalando to continue our collective impact format. We build powerful interdisciplinary teams in a creative and non-competitive setting to support impact driven organisations who are revolutionising the supply chain.
