Hackathons International aims to empower everyone in the world to be changemakers
What we do
We provide educational material (templates, videos and eLearning modules) so that innovators, organisers and partners are well equipped when preparing and participating in online, global experiences
In 2014, a group of regular hackathon enthuiasts were at the pub wondering how they could use their skills to solve meaningful and impactful problems. Hackathons Australia was created. Six years later, COVID-19 hit and the world became more digital. With hackathon communities allowing people from anywhere in the world to participate, we saw an opportunity to unite changemakers. Hackathons International was born.
Our Core Values
