BR2016 GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT.
YOU CAN BE PART OF THE BIGGEST EVER GLOBAL HACKATHON.
#BR2016 life-changing hackathon theme for 2016:How Can Technology Help Solve World Homelessness?
Business Rocks 2016 will host a global hackathon in a bid to help solve the ever-growing problem of homelessness through technology.
From Manchester’s City Centre to the shores of the Mediterranean, homelessness isn’t just about rough sleepers and migrants fleeing war zones, it’s about the needed change in the hearts and minds of those in a position to use their skills to help solve the growing crisis.
The theme of the 2 day hack will educate some of the sharpest and brightest minds about the dangers, challenges and needs of the vulnerable. A panel consisting of the homeless from Gary Neville’s Stock Exchange project, scientists, developers, technologists, social housing and experts on the current migrant crisis will set the ‘tech for good’ challenge.
This is a project inspired by the homeless, for the homeless.
Business Rocks is actively seeking partners with a development, education, technology and humanitarian focus to join us in a mass-scale effort to affect social change.
