3 days to build digital donation and fundraising apps
Crowdfunding, digital donations and other innovative ways of fundraising have become increasingly important to the non-profit sector. It feels like only yesterday that we saw the light of the first donation Apps and crowdfunding platforms, but the constant iterations has leaped the development one big step ahead. Imagine what donations will look like in the future! But don´t just imagine it - come build it!
Hack the World @ betterplace will bring social entrepreneurs, creatives, developers and business people together to discover and develop the future of digital donations. Together, we want to create innovative new tools, fun features or mind-blowing concepts.
Discuss the challenges, pitch your ideas, form a team, work-work-work, get feedback from experts and mentors. Get to know likeminded people, do good, exchange knowledge, learn, build and network in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Then, finally, present and exhibit what you have achieved in just three days. Whether it be a new donation App, a fundraising website or an entirely new charity concept, we cannot wait to see it!
Aufgang/entrance C, 5th floor
Schlesische Straße 26
We're short walk from Schlesisches Tor, Treptower Park U/S-Bahn stations, just follow the "Hackathon" signs when you get here.
Note that while you're free to leave at any time, the doors are only open for entry between 8am and midnight.
We all start coding at the same time. Prior to the hackathon you may work on idea validation, digital mockups or your mockups. But please, no coding beforehand.
The teams will have full ownership of everything they build during the hackathon.
Create a prototype, build an App, design a website or present a cool fundraising concept, which can help non-profits improve their social impact.
Remember that you're at the Hackathon to have fun. It's a place to experiment, meet interesting people, learn something new and build something from scratch. Don't stress yourself out too much if you don't accomplish what you set out to do. Make sure to have a good time and put your best food forward.
