Hack for Big Choices and Hub Accra are teaming up to bring the biggest hackathon series ever to West Africa! High impact and problem-solution driven – our hosts are putting together an awe inspiring progression of workshops, speaker and dialogue series, and meet-ups – all culminating in the biggest Hackathon to ever be held in West Africa. #HackforBigChoicesAfrica.
Facebook:Facebook is the #1 social media company in the world, connecting over 1 Billion people online.
Wordpress: WordPress is one of the top blogging sites in the world for aspiring bloggers and writers.
Internet.org is a Facebook-led initiative bringing together technology leaders, nonprofits and local communities to connect the two thirds of the world that doesn’t have internet access.
Other sponsors include the U.S. Embassy, U.S. Government, MEST, UNICEF, and many more.
The participants of our program will focus on finding solutions that can be executed locally and continue to be developed after the hackathon. Each key issue manifests itself differently in each region so the organizers can match up entrepreneurs in each region with their needed resources (mentors, coaches, training, education) – building a local infrastructure that can support innovation and entrepreneurial activities.
Who can participate?
- The hackathon is open to everyone: computer programmers, doctors, politicians, designers, scientists, educators and all other professionals.
- The event is an active forum for people to come together and make a huge impact on the world.
