It brings together around 200 young GEEKS, ENTREPRENEURS, CREATIVES, YOUNG IT PROFESSIONALS, INNOVATORS, DESIGNERS and INDUSTRY LEADERS under one roof for a full weekend (Friday until Sunday) to solve pressing challenges for businesses, government, economic sectors, IT Industry and our communities through the use of Technology

2017 Theme: COLLABORATIVE DIGITAL ECONOMY

Synopsis: How do we get Developers or young people to realize and play that necessary role in the key sectors of the Economy. The Geekulcha Hackathon provides a great platform to promote social cohesion and build value of the collaboration with solutions providers through working together towards a common goal. Through building the capacity, how then can our Economic and Industry policy makers work with the "hackers" in addressing the economical dynamics for the mass benefit?

These challenges can be broken down to Smart technology, Green, Rural/Township Economy, Youth, Property, Tourism, Agriculture and local community development

The hackers will form teams of maximum 5 members and pick a challenge to solve while networking with fellow hackers and industry leaders

The Geekulcha Hackathon isn't just another hackathon. It is an experience not be be missed
