This guide was created to assist teams of the AU Center for Innovation Hackathon. The left-hand navigation includes a tab for each of the three sectors: fintech, medtech, and edtech. These sub pages include various resources like open internet reports, AU Library subscription databases, and ebooks from the collection. Items chosen are meant to give groups a place to start - but are certainly not the only resources available or useful for this competition.
Good luck to all the teams!
