Impact Hackathon Online 2021 aims to create sustainable digital solutions through a 3-day virtual hackathon. The event focuses on helping the country reboot its economy given the ongoing health crisis – COVID 19 through digitization.


Who Can Join

The challenge invites individuals and teams of all ages given that attendees below 18 years old are required to have written consent of their legal guardians. We are looking for diversity in gender, race, background, and types of experiences. All that is required is an interest in developing solutions to the current problems of the country, and a commitment to participate fully throughout the Impact Hackathon Program.
