About The Hackathon
Hackathons give birth to innovations that have transformed and disrupted markets. It’s a platform for creative minds and self-expression for unsolved problems or for better solutions. Challenging the mind by competing with others for innovative solutions helps the individual & the organization grow to the next level. Pushing the limits of technology, combined with ideas for solving a given problem is a great combination.
You can’t solve a problem on the same level that it was created. You have to raise above it to the next level – Albert Einstein
