Who is Hackathons International?

Hackathons International aims to educate and create tomorrow’s changemakers, getting them to think outside of the box. They design, develop and deploy innovative experiences that achieve tangible outcomes. Their core values are diversity, sustainability and equality.

After Communiteer connects corporates, NFPs and volunteers, Hackathons International will facilitate a collaborative virtual workshop using a tried and tested formula to engage professionals together across different teams and disciplines to ideate NFP business challenges.

Hackathons International and Communiteer are bringing virtual and event-based volunteering into one place, combining the scalability of tech solutions with the speed and outcome-driven event format.

What is a hackathon?

A short, pressurized process where ideas are designed, developed, deployed, and demonstrated, consisting of 4 phases.

Online hackathons are the new ‘volunteer days’ for corporates organisations, professional industry groups, and social groups. They’re a unique experience that enables a high level of engagement, interactiveness and creativity for small or large teams.

They can range from 1 day to 1 week programs​, and include tasks that require diverse perspectives and skills.
