A hackathon is a creative, disruptive and innovative design sprint where people from all walks of life with unique and different experiences come together to create a solution in accordance with the chosen theme.

Who can participate?

Students from any University at any level of study (undergraduate, postgraduate or even if you’ve already graduated), or a professional interested in creating impact through multi-disciplinary collaboration.
