When a company decides to seek a strategic development or commercial partner for an asset, the first inclination is often to identify the likely buyers and begin conversations about a potential deal. However, entering a deal process without first having a full understanding of the product’s advantages, disadvantages, and commercial potential reduces the odds of a successful deal outcome.

This is especially true for assets at later stages of development where the target product profile is well understood and the commercial assessment can have the greatest impact.

Battlebots is code based game, where humans just like you, write code to move a bot around a virtual arena. When your bot enters the arena you and your bot will face challenges such as;

- safely navigating the arena
- avoiding threats like walls, bot poison, and even other bots themselves
- collecting items that will increase your bot's score
- applying the perfect algorithm to your bot, enabling it to destroy anything and everything around it

The game is over when there is one bot left standing or time has run out. The bot with the highest score wins.

When and where?
June 25th from 9am to 6pm WillowTree will be hosting the Battlebot Hackathon at the new "Treehouse" location.
