The Global Hack is an online hackathon designed to share and rapidly develop ideas for urgently needed solutions in the face of the current crisis, as well as to build resilience post-pandemic.
Our prize pool for the best ideas is 120k euros
The Global Hack has already drawn attention across the globe – covered by Forbes, Silicon Republic, CNN among others – and brought on board a fleet of world-class mentors, such as Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, former President of Estonia Toomas Hendrik Ilves and Khaliya – public health specialist and a neuro-technologist.
The Global Hack is a global initiative which unites the Hack the Crisis movement and the 40+ hackathons put up in the frames of this movement. The core initiative comes from the team who organised the very first hackathon just in 6 hours on 13-15 of March in Estonia and are passionate about solving the huge ongoing crisis that concerns everyone at the moment (the people are from Garage48, Accelerate Estonia, Guaana). BUT this is truly a global effort and movement involving communities and organizers from all over the world.
If there ever was a time to go all out in our efforts to address the transformation necessary to survive, and thrive, in a post-pandemic world, then this is it!
This crisis is far from over. The need to begin addressing the problems that we’ll face as a global society, once we can venture out from our homes again, is now. How will we deal with the expected massive changes to our economy, workplaces, healthcare, and environment as we find our world order transformed—perhaps, beyond recognition?
On 9-12 April, 2020 we’re putting on The Global Hack to imagine the possibilities and create solutions to meet the needs of our changed world. Our goal is to bring together world class mentors and globally-talented teams to build solutions for better tomorrows.
We’re looking for brilliant people from every corner of the globe to participate in The Global Hack. We find ourselves in a unique situation, and are literally all in this together—the entire world is looking for solutions to the same problems at the same time.
