Registration: September 21, 2017
Language: English
Location: Riverside, CA, USA
Prizes: Cash prize, publication, proposal pitch
Type: Open


Influence the future of Riverside, CA by merging design & tech to positively impact tourism in the city. #RUH17 . Riverside hosts amazing events every year, like the Festival of Lights, but the challenge of attracting tourists and caring for their needs is an ever shifting target.

The #RUH17 challenge is to create new and engaging tools & experiences for tourism in downtown Riverside.

Participants may select from any facet of tourism from: urban planning considerations, new types of events, to entertaining mobile apps. The only requirement is that proposals are actionable and use downtown Riverside as their canvas. We encourage participants to think creatively about what challenges tourists commonly face, what draws them in, and what types of events they want to see.

The winner will be selected during the Riverside Startup Week by jurors from business, design, and community organizations. However, these jurors will not act alone. Every submission will be shared on social media. Since Riverside is a global destination, the spirit of #RUH17 is to actively seek the global community’s input. Submissions with higher levels of community input and online discussion have a distinct advantage.


Grand Prize: $1,000

The top voted participants will have the opportunity to present their proposal to leading business and community leaders in Riverside to move their proposal forward to possible implementation. This opportunity to “pitch” will be customized for each proposal, thereby giving it the best change for success.

All participants receive:

  • Extensive coverage on social media and Bryck website
  • Recognition on any printed or digital material made for #RUH17
  • Free ticket to the Riverside Startup Week event
  • Discounted pricing for Riverside Urban Hackathon 2018
