Cleveland-Marshall College of Law students Dana Beveridge, Jackson Biesecker, and Mara Hirz are advancing to the worldwide final of the Global Legal Hackathon as part of Team INCO-herent. The start-up is one of 14 teams out of 37 semifinalists to qualify for the final round taking place April 21 in New York City.
Team INCO-herent, made up of BakerHostetler technology expert Mark Bruenig and University of Akron law student Kevin Burwell along with the three C|M|LAW students, is working on an interactive website and smart contract application that simplifies INCOTERMS, which are a series of pre-defined international commercial shipping terms, and creates automatic smart contracts for shipping.
Team INCO-herent had qualified for the semifinal competition after winning the local host competition hosted by C|M|LAW as part of Monte Ahuja College of Business/ StartUp Vikes program. Participants from 22 countries spanning six continents began the competition and Team INCO-herent will be participating alongside teams from around the globe in the final round, including participants from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Hungry, Nigeria and Singapore.
