In collaboration with WhatsApp, Airtel IQ, a cloud communications provider that is part of Airtel Digital, is organizing a hackathon to create business use cases for Airtel IQ APIs on the WhatsApp Business platform.

The hackathon, which has a prize pool of Rs1 crore, will end applications on October 9 and hold a grand finale on December 1 following three rounds of participant evaluation.

Along with the financial award, winners will also get business mentoring from senior executives at Airtel and WhatsApp in the areas of engineering, business, and product. Additionally, the winners will have access to the WhatsApp API and receive free conversations on the WhatsApp Business Platform, which will save their operating costs.

However, according to the company, it is the first telecom in the world to get a Business Service Provider (BSP) license from Meta via WhatsApp, allowing it to deliver services such as constructing chatbots for enterprises on the WhatsApp business platform.
