Girls in Tech Presents: A Social Innovation Hackathon 

Women Uniting to Solve SF Bay Area Challenges

It’s that time of the year again!

Join the Girls in Tech, San Francisco chapter for our 3rd annual Hacking for Humanity hackathon. This year, we’re focusing on tackling topics that deal with local San Francisco/Bay Area issues such as (but not limited to) the following:  

      – Homelessness
      – Affordable Housing
      – Economic Disparity
      – Transportation

Hackathons exist to enable the rapid prototyping of a complex problem and provide a range of solutions in a short period of time. By hacking with us, we are aiming to think bigger for global change with tech, whilst also allowing impassioned women to engage in innovation and entrepreneurship within our tech ecosystem.

We are calling all women and men across the globe, including developers, designers, product developers, and entrepreneurs, plus businesses that want to embrace the idea of Social Innovation or initiatives that combine a positive mission with business.

This hackathon is beginner friendly and for participants new to coding or hackathons. However, any and all levels are welcome. You can come with your own team (no more than 5 per team). No team? No problem –  we’ll figure that out for you. Form a team, solve a problem, create something awesome, present it to the audience and win prizes!

Register now to participate as a Hacker! Your ticket includes meals/brainfood for both days.
