Goodie Hack[athon] For Developers #HackCancer

Friday, June 22nd - Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Here’s the deal. Way too many people in the United States are affected by cancer and STDs each year. But Goodie Impact Pre-Accelerator: Hack Cancer is meant to change that. It is a 3-month program where founders see their ideas about ways to help those currently or potentially affected by cancer get turned into reality.

This Hackathon For Developers, Phase III in the program, is a 48 hour experience where developers donate their talent, and join the teams of these founders in an effort to turn their clickable prototypes that combat cancer into working products.

This is your chance to help those impacted by cancer, and possibly win money and other prizes. It’s a mashup of social good, tech, entrepreneurship and highly-skilled people, and, quite possibly, the coolest community service project you’ll ever experience. Register and join our community of changemakers today!


Community Partners: Startup Atlanta, Hypepotamus, DigitalCrafts, Community Bucket, Legal Hackers, Code For Atlanta, Technologists of Color, CS+Social Good @ Georgia Tech, Urban League Young Professionals of Greater Atlanta, Product404, and more.

Prizes: Over $2,000 in prizes

Judges: Alianor Chapman (Director of Engineering, MailChimp), Brian Hardy (Principal Engineer, StichFix), and more.
