What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event designed for people to solve problems. Teams collaborate, quickly innovate new ideas and build proof of concepts.
The Corona Virus Hackathon will be completely VIRTUAL using tools like Zoom/ Skype/ Slack/ YouTube/ Facebook/ Google Docs.

We are not a traditional tech hackathon.
We will use the hackathon concept to come up with new products, business models, policy and campaigns by encouraging cross-pollination of ideas. We are bringing different perspectives together virtually: young people, teachers, artists, behavioural scientists, industry expert & developers.

What
A two day exclusive online ‘Open Innovation’ event to inspire every citizen to think of real solutions to the aftermath of the Coronavirus crisis. The winning teams will get the opportunity to present their solutions to investors, philanthropic funds & policymakers and make a change.

Our Goals.
During the Coronavirus Hackathon, you will meet and work with like-minded, diverse creators and experts to develop actionable solutions to the aftermath of Covid-19; be it new:
- products
- business models
- campaigns
- policies
- tech prototypes
