About this event

Join us for a fast-paced full-day do-gooder Hackathon at General Assembly. You'll be working in teams to develop solutions for social good, and pitch to win prizes.

You will move fast, break things, and build a prototype in 12 hours. Expect a frenzy of problem-solving & prototyping. Best of all, you will have a ton of fun and learn along the way.
