#HackTheViolence Goodie Marketing + Prototyping Hackathon

Friday, October 27th - Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Here’s the deal. Way too many people in the United States are affected by violence each year. But Goodie Innovation Lab: Hack The Violence is meant to change that. It is a 4 month social impact pre-accelerator where founders see their ideas about ways to combat violence get turned into reality.

This Marketing + Prototyping Hackathon, Phase II in the program, is a 48 hour experience where UI/UX designers, digital marketers, entrepreneurs, web designers, branding/communication specialists, business analysts, and graphic designers donate their talent, and join the teams of these founders in an effort to turn their ideas to combat violence into clickable prototypes, landing pages, logos, revenue models, and plans to get to their first 100 users/customers.

This is your chance to help those impacted by violence, and possibly win $1,000. 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!
