It’s a hackathon with one unique, world-changing goal: develop an innovative digital solution that helps build an inclusive environment in urban communities across the globe. Developers, designers, marketing specialists, students and recent grads across the globe, Accenture Digital needs you to make it happen. Apply and join.
The first Accenture Global Connected Hackathon, in conjunction with Expo 2020 Dubai will take place Nov. 10-12. In one 24-hour marathon across 11 cities and three continents simultaneously, individuals and small groups will collaborate, share ideas and experiment with the latest tech innovations to prototype products and services that will create social and economic value for the community:
How can digital innovation foster an urban environment that helps people express themselves?
How can digital revolutionize the way we interact with the wider community?
How can digital be used to build an inclusive environment?
Individuals and teams of three to five people are invited to apply and join the “Truly Human”-themed event from Bangalore, Chicago, Dubai, Istanbul, London, Manila, Mexico City, Monterrey, Rome, Shanghai and Singapore. There is no fee to participate; only a passion for digital technology and innovation and a desire to make a difference is required. Winners receive prizes, hands-on experience with the latest digital innovations—and a chance to change the world. One lucky global person/team will be automatically shortlisted for the Expo 2020 Live Innovation award, and they will be in the running for a $100,000 grant.
