I am interested in getting involved with a community to build transformative solutions.

If any of these statements resonate for you, or you have a problem worth solving you want to explore, please read further and sign up for a new kind of experience.

What we face in our world today are tough problems that cannot be solved by individuals or even small teams. They require the input of many diverse smart people, working in a focused way together, with astute guidance to become investable. That is what we believe startups building transformative solutions need today, and Serval Ventures has been working with partners to build a more robust framework to enable founders and startups to succeed.

We believe that the easy solutions worth building have been built. What remains are more complex problems to be solved requiring a range of expertise and experiences. We are putting out a broad call to those who might be interested in exploring innovation. All that is required is a short-term investment of time and energy. Out of this hackathon series, we expect to identify projects that will offer opportunities to many of the participants, and Serval will be looking for the most promising projects to bring into our portfolio to work with as capital partners and for investments.

Target audiences:

Skills - tech, data, business, product, innovation, creative, business development, partnerships, finance, marketing, etc.

Types - aspiring entrepreneurs, experienced founders, career transitioners, researchers, professionals entering the market, students, innovation advisors/mentors, etc.
