Tech Connect Hackathon presented by Comcast NBC Universal
July 30, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - July 31, 2015 @ 6:30 pm UTC-5
The National Urban League, in partnership with Digital Grass, will host TechConnect: Hack-A-Thon for Social Justice, presented by Comcast NBCUniversal. This two-day hack-a-thon will take place July 30- 31, 2015 during the National Urban League’s Annual Conference! TechConnect provides a space for innovators to design original applications to alleviate the most pressing social issues of our day, specifically those in tune with this year’s Conference theme, Save Our Cities: Education, Jobs, and Justice. The resulting application/software is to be implemented* by the Urban League for enhancing civic engagement, voting, education pipeline, housing, health, justice and job creation in urban communities. Developers, designers, civic leaders and creative thinkers are all invited to be among the first to create solutions to Save Our Cities and compete for $2,500 in cash and $25,000 in prizes!
*The grand prize winner of cash does not secure implementation of product by the National Urban League. NUL will do a post evaluation of the top 3 winners to select the possible project to implement with the advisory of Digital Grass.
