Datathons are a new type of live-action competition for STEM students. They are analogous to "Hackathons" for software engineers, but instead of building apps, contestants use real-world data to develop and substantiate solutions to a socially impactful problem. If you are curious to see what a Datathon looks like, we encourage you to view this brief clip from our past event in Dublin!
The Toronto Datathon is hosted by Citadel LLC & Citadel Securities in partnership with Correlation One. The event will take place on Saturday, January 27th from 8:00am-6:00pm in the Fleck Atrium at the Rotman School of Management. There will also be an exclusive Citadel Networking Reception on Friday evening at the Toronto Stock Exchange for all invited Datathon participants.
