What is a
hackathon?

A hackathon is a coding marathon by programmers, developers, designers and data scientists over a period of time that will prototype a seemingly impossible idea into a possible and viable business

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

With students around the country losing their access to education due to the pandemic, Impact Hackathon Education is looking for innovative solutions that can be the key to achieving an efficient and effective learning system so that students can receive quality education no matter where they are.
