Problem Statements

What is Hackathon?

A hackathon is a dynamic event that brings creative minds together to address real-world challenges through innovation. Participants form teams and work tirelessly within a set timeframe to develop prototypes or solutions for specific issues. The term “hack” doesn’t imply illegal activity but highlights ingenious problem-solving and creativity.

India’s IT talent seeks a platform to showcase innovative solutions globally, and hackathons fulfill this role. They serve as a launchpad for creativity and problem-solving, allowing individuals and teams to turn visionary ideas into tangible solutions, from software applications to hardware prototypes.
