Jains in Action Virtual Hackathon

Event Description

Are you a young Jain who is interested in entrepreneurship, human centered design, or finding creative ways to make the world a better place? Are you looking for a way to build skills this summer? Apply to participate in the Jains in Action Virtual Hackathon! Part I of the Virtual Hackathon will run from July 5 - Aug 30, and the winning team will receive up to $500 to work on their idea 🎉

Participants in the Virtual Hackathon will collaborate with a team of young Jain peers from across the country, and also have access to workshops on the skills of human centered design, brainstorming, problem solving, and pitching and storytelling. Each part of the hackathon will be capped off by a Pitch Day, with opportunities to win mentorship, prizes, and more. Any young Jain ages 14-29 is eligible to participate. If you need more convincing, check out these reflections from past JIA participants!
