Global Hackathon Series 2019
The Global Hackathon Series was initially started by a small community of technologists with one goal in mind: to develop opportunity wherever possible.
What started as a way for creators to connect and move their ideas forward turned into a global revolution. Soon, innovators from around the world were joining forces to elevate themselves and their platform - all of which was done through Hackathons.
And while we’ve seen lots of changes since the early Hackathon days, one thing has remained the same - innovators are continuing to rise. Innovators rise to meet opportunity, they rise from failure, they rise from all corners of the globe, and they lend a hand to help others rise with them. It’s why the Global Hackathon Series is still going strong to this day, because Hackathons and the opportunities they create allow people to rise, together.
One principle that has guided this community since its first Hackathon is that everyone is welcome. Great ideas stem from discussion, and we believe the best discussions start by talking to someone whose background or experiences might differ from your own. With this in mind, we invite all startups, developers, entrepreneurs, and designers who are passionate about creating to join regardless of experience level, geographic location, or similar factors. And if you're under 18 we ask that you bring along a parent or guardian when you check-in so they can sign a participation waiver.
Each submission will be scored in each round based on the following criteria with a minimum score of 0 and a maximum score of 25 points, with the final score being the average of the judges’ scores:
Fundability: How fundable is this idea? Is there potential for a sustainable business model? Is this scalable? (0-5 points)
Execution: How well was the project executed and explained? Did they add a demo video? (0-5 points)
UI/UX: Beyond design, was the end-to-end user experience for the solution considered? (0-5 points)
Originality: How original, creative or unique is the idea? Is there a competitive advantage? (0-5 points)
Team: Is there a diverse team presented? Do they have a range of complementary skill sets for the project? (0-5 points)
