DevelopHer Hackday 2015
A special hack day competition that aims to foster a stronger sense of community among women in engineering and provide a creative platform for innovation and entrepreneurship. Form a team, code all night, create something awesome, and present it to the judges to win prizes.
What is a hackday?
It is a chance for you to form a team, work on something you are passionate about, and turn it into a working prototype - otherwise known as a “hack.” During the hackday you’ll have the opportunity to build something great, network with fellow women in tech and pitch it to the judges.
So what’s the DevelopHer Hackday?
The DevelopHer hackday is focused on hacks that empower women. These could be apps that help women grow and establish businesses and achieve financial independence. Or, hacks could take on human trafficking of women. Maybe technology could be conceived that allows the community of women to crowdsource something like venture financing, safety and security, family wellness, or the gender gap in technology. The possibilities are endless, and we can’t wait to see what teams come up with.
