Get ready for an exciting journey at our hackathon, which is divided into two phases: Ideation and Implementation.
Make your idea and implement it!
During the Ideation phase, participants will dive into researching their chosen problem statement and come up with a comprehensive business plan for a viable solution. They'll have the opportunity to brainstorm with their teams, consult with industry professionals, and develop their ideas to perfection.
Then, during the Implementation phase, participants get to roll up their sleeves and bring their ideas to life! With the support of their team, they'll have the chance to turn their plans into a tangible solution that can make a real-world impact.
