About the Competition

Hackathon is a coding marathon by Programmers, Developers, Designers and Data Scientists over a period of time that will prototype a seemingly impossible idea to a possible and viable business.

Veering away from traditional hackathons where ideas created ends up shelved due to lack of follow through, Impact Hackathon is designed with a reverse hackathon model where major partners can provide problem statements and become mentors to the Developer teams.

The Impact Hackathon is a 3 day virtual code fest that seeks to find the most innovative solution that aims to address the challenge statements provided by our vertical partners.
