Join us to build the future of E-Commerce through automation

Join us this November to build a future where e-commerce meets Media Automation. Over the past decade, we’ve witnessed a rapid digital transformation in online commerce. Content like user generated content, testimonials, product images, data-driven creatives, etc in the form of digital media has been a crucial part of marketing for sellers. The demand for product content is only going to grow as more users adopt online shopping.

But what are we doing to solve this demand? Do the brands have the right tools? How can we use the latest technologies like AI and automation to efficiently solve this problem? That is exactly what this hackathon aims to solve - to develop creative applications that can efficiently generate marketing content for e-commerce sellers through automation.
