Hack the New World

May 15-17, 2020

About the hackathon

Hack the New World hackathon calls for everyone who has an idea or expertise and is determined to take a stand against the ongoing crisis and wants to give back to the community. Uniting innovators and visionaries, our primary goal is to create swift ready-to-implement solutions for businesses and the public sector to ensure the well-being of our city.

WE FOCUS:

Hack the New World seeks creative software and hardware solutions in the following areas:

  • Tourism and hospitality
  • Crisis response
  • Transportation
  • Retail industry
  • Work
  • Event industry
  • Community development
  • Healthcare
  • Online Education

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

  • Engineers with a minimum of 2 years of experience in tech
  • UI/UX designers ready to experiment
  • Visionaries who already have an idea of how to save the post-pandemic world
  • Managers who can effectively organize a team in a very short time
  • Passionate volunteers ready to dedicate 48 hours of their life for a social cause

WHY JOIN:

  • Hack the New World differs from other hackathons in a way that the solutions developed during the 48-hour event will be immediately used by the city. You will be able to see the results of your work right away.
  • Experienced mentors will continue to support your solution even after the hackathon is over. A real solution for the city that works is the end goal for both participants and mentors.
  • Ideas created and developed during the hackathon will have the opportunity to be selected and funded by investors from the Lviv Tech Angels club.

Participation is free of charge.
