  • How to #makeshithappen



    Make Something Meaningful

    We live in a world where we create things for profit, aiming to be first to market, but forget at times why we do what we do, and whether it empowers people to be or do more. So make something meaningful, change the world. Do not be afraid of a challenge and THINK BIG.


    Do not compare your beginning to someone else’s middle

    The only thing that matters is your idea and that you have the drive and passion to make it happen.


     Everyone is a resource

    Everyone in this room can help you, teach you, facilitate and bring you forward. This is not a room full of competitors; this is a room full of leaders, here for the same reason as you, to make this world a better place. So help each other.


    You can. End of Story

    The words ‘can’t, impossible, it’s always been that way’ are not permitted to be used during the 48 hour hack. Ignore the voice in your head that attempts to discourage you from doing what you want to do. YOU CAN. End of story.

    What is a hackathon?

    Do I have to be a programmer or designer to attend?

    It would be nice but it’s not mandatory, while it’s important you have an interest in technology and building things, we’re looking for passionate hustlers to participate in as part of our community, so if you are a kick ass ideator, you’re more than welcome to join in on the fun.

    Do I have to come with an idea?

    Nope, only if you want to. Those with ideas have 60 seconds to pitch on Day 1 to form a team, and those who don't pitch can join in find an idea they want to spend the weekend working on.

    How do I find a team / How are teams formed?

    Teams are created on the first night during the briefing. If you have an idea, you will have 60 seconds to pitch it to the whole group, if you don’t, not to worry, you’ll get to mix and mingle so you can find an idea you believe in and help lead your team to victory!
