Urban Impact supports the WirVsVirus Hackathon
The weekend of the 20th to 22nd of March marked an event with nearly 43.000 participants and dedicated iniciators constantly working all weekend to coordinate the #WirVsVirus Hackathon. As the world is hacking for solutions of arising challenges due to the pandemic crisis, the German edition #WirVsVirus was recorded as the largest online hackathon ever done (the Guinness Book of World records is checking it). We were more than excited to have become part of the amazing organization team along with initators like Impact Hub, Prototype Fund or SEND e.V. Even more outstanding than the entire organization and coordination of the hackathon was the output of it, with over 1.500 solutions in less than 48 hours. Out of all solutions 130 projects will be continuing working in a so called Solution Enabler supported by various stakeholders. Another 20 projects, which have been awarded as the best ideas, have the chance to become part of an exclusive Solution Builder Accelerator. News on that shortly!
