More Than A Hackathon

We believe hackathons are more than just about building cool projects. It’s also a place to discuss, share, and bring to life ideas that make a difference. Look forward to working with non-profits, coding alongside industry experts, and above all, collaborating with your peers to create something truly amazing!

Everyone can participate!
