Are you an innovative and creative individual? Do you call yourself a PROBLEM SOLVER? Are you PASSIONATE about making a difference in the community?
Grab your friends and make a team for the first ever Enactus SFU Hackathon! This Hackathon is open to students from all faculties.
The Enactus SFU Hackathon is a 2 day hackathon open to all SFU students hosted at SFU Surrey that will provide a platform for teams to create innovative solutions to Vancouver’s largest, most crucial problems. The hackathon will also include a series of workshops that will help prepare teams for a final pitch competition on their ideas. It is an opportunity for individuals to come together to help solve pressing needs in our community and learn about social innovation, entrepreneurship, as well as network with professionals from the tech, health and entrepreneurship industries.
The first day will consist of speakers from Tech, Health and Design and hands-on workshops on Entrepreneurship, Branding and Social Innovation to assist the teams in preparing for the cases ahead. At the end of the day, the teams will be given their case to work on and will have 24 hours to come up with a creative solution to the problem, whether it be an innovative process, an app, a product, or an interactive site.
The second day will be pitchoff day, where participating teams will present their brilliant solutions to a panel of industry judges. Participants will also have the opportunity to present on the big stage to the general public and win amazing prizes.
The registration process is painless and straightforward.
