Transforming Children’s Lives Hackathon
Acton School of Business, Austin, TX
October 25-27, 2013
Create technology that matters.
OVER $10K IN CASH PRIZES
Join us for a hackathon in Austin, TX where you will spend the weekend creating technology that matters with like-minded people. The weekend hackathon will focus the passion, purpose, and creativity of our entrepreneurial community in supporting the good work of transforming children's lives.
Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, creative individuals from all disciplines, investors, non-profits, and churches, will design and build new applications to help fight and eradicate all forms of injustice in a child’s life.
The weekend will steer participants toward the development of apps with over $10,000 being awarded. We're looking for games to teach and enable, in children, greater spiritual justice; consider building a new Kiva to increase the generosity; ask why our Churches still lack something like Udemy to bring kids together and inspire future leaders - and change that. International Justice Mission will join us, encouraging technology to help report and expose human trafficking and alert authorities. Convoy of Hope will challenge us to build technologies to alleviate global hunger. Generis will inspire us to use technology to foster a culture of generosity. We will work with OneHope to help bring spiritual wellbeing to children. And much more.
Marketplace and ministry leaders, angel investors, and hi-tech accelerators will be at the hackathon to meet and mentor you. Build relationships that might go beyond the hackathon, to help you continue working on your projects and build partnerships to bring your ideas t_o your users.
Come join us!
THE REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE REFUNDED TO ALL PARTICIPANTS WHO ARE MEMBERS OF TEAMS THAT PRESENT THEIR SOLUTIONS ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 27.
When & Where
Leadership Network was created in 1984 from the close collaboration between Bob Buford and Peter Drucker to foster innovative movements among churches that active the broader church for greater impact.
Believing that meaningful conversations and connections can change the world, Leadership Network seeks to help leaders of innovation navigate the future by exploring new ideas together to find application to their own unique contexts. Through collaborative meetings and processes these leaders map future possibilities and challenge one another to action that leads to results.
Through our gatherings, publications, books and online experiences we share the learnings and inspiration to others and surface new conversations worthy of exploration.
Leadership Network is a Dallas, Texas, based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its global ministry includes programs around the world.
