This 4-day virtual hackathon will be a meeting of the minds, a platform that enables connections between the thinkers, the doers, the movers and the shakers. This hackathon is the first virtual hackathon in the Philippines, and a pioneering concept in the Mindanao region, where we will explore practical and innovative solutions that respond to a specific problem within a challenge area, through the use of science and technology.   This will go down in history as the event that moved the needle, so we can can safely latch on to a new life now and after the crisis.


Anybody from Mindanao (residing, birthplace, working) or anyone who has a heart for Mindanao can take part in this virtual event. All you need is a stable internet connection, mobile phone, tablet or laptop where you can access the video conferences, workshop tools and applications, and programs that can help you and your team in ideating and creating your project.

Get ready to meet people from within and outside your locality!
Connect, ideate and make new friends in the process.
