FAQs

What is a Hackathon?

Hackathons are NOT just for programmers. A Hackathons is a short, pressurized competition where a group come together to design, develop, and demonstrate their ideas on center stage! Usually at the start we give you context about a problem/challenge statement, and then it's up to you to come up with creative ideas! We expect your teams to develop a rough Minimum Viable Product so you can pitch your idea and show the judges what you've come up with on the Sunday afternoon. Read more here

Who can participate in a Hackathon?

Anyone with an open mindset can participate. Because this is a Hackathon focused around launching business ideas, helping individuals getting into the tech industry and upskilling software developers, we need a mix of business, design, technical, creative and industry experts to collaborate and work together as teams.
