The six largest cities in Finland (Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Tampere, Turku and Oulu) want to support the development of new user based services by arranging an Open Data innovation competition. The aim of the DataBusiness Challenge is to encourage developers, entrepreneurs and start-ups to start utilizing the existing open datasets and interfaces offered by the six cities.
The competition started 3/10/2016 and the deadline for submissions is 30/1/2017. All the six cities are arranging events, meet-ups and hackathons during the competition period. The competition will end with a reward gala to be held in Helsinki at the end of February 2017.
