The Central Group / BioLinc Hackathon
March 3, 2018 - March 4, 2018
The Central Group is a Performance at Retail company focused on delivering exceptional results from retail merchandising and display solutions. BioLinc @ Brock University is a business incubation centre supporting students both in the Goodman School of Business and across Brock University.
This joint hackathon will attack an emerging problem for our retail brand clients in the candy and confectionary space. Retail is shifting and the checkout is changing. Self-checkout lanes, mobile checkout options, and no-checkout options are emerging and eliminating the traditional checkout candy point of impulse buying. We are going to spend the weekend exploring how to address this shift in the retail marketplace together with our partners.
