The Girls in Tech Hacking for Humanity is a hack for good. We work with local NGOs/Charities so that attendees can solve pressing and relevant business challenges that will make a difference in their community.
Hackathons are a chance for everyone with any background and gender to contribute. You don’t need any technical skills to contribute. Come see for yourself.
You will meet really cool like minded people that you’ll get to work with for a weekend. You will get exposed to what it’s like to take an idea and create a concept ready for market. You will learn new skills. The most innovative ideas will have the chance to pitch your ideas to judges. You will get to win top notch prizes.
