Girls in Tech Austin Presents: A Social Innovation Hackathon

Saturday, May 6

9:00am-6:00pm

Women and men across the globe, including developers, designers, product developers and entrepreneurs, plus businesses that want to embrace the idea of Social Innovation, or initiatives that combine a positive mission with business.

Innovations such as the sharing economy, preventative healthcare apps and micro finance are examples of progressive solutions to problems that impact everyone. More social enterprises are launching worldwide, every year, with the goal to radically transform sectors such as education, healthcare, environmental conservancy, at-risk youth and more.

We need 25 "coders in training" that will be paired with a Coding Mentor.

Purpose:

■ Hackathons exist to enable the rapid prototyping of a complex problem and provide a range of solutions in a short period of time.

■ By choosing to hack for humanity, we’re aiming to help

■ Change charities with tech, whilst also allowing impassioned women to engage in innovation and entrepreneurship within our tech ecosystem.

■ Form a team, solve a problem, create something awesome, present it to the audience and win prizes! Please click Register to participate as a Hacker!
