Jains in Action | Virtual Hackathon Pitch Day

Event Description

Join us for the Jains in Action Virtual Hackathon Pitch Day! Eight teams will pitch their best ideas, inspired by Jainism, for solving a world issue or problem of their choice. Each team will present their solution and get Q&A and feedback from our judges - one idea will win $500 to help make it a reality!


We are excited to be joined by several distinguished judges:
-Chintan Shah is a marketing and communications executive, former YJA Co-Chair, and current chair of the JAINA Long-Range Planning Committee.
-Priyanka Shah is a Board Certified PA and creator of the Jain vegan cooking and lifestyle blog Pinki’s Palate.
-Richard Harrill teaches in the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Public Policy and helped build and run the first incubator for social enterprises at the university.
