Social Hackathon

March 16 @ 08:30 - 21:30


Create impact-driven solutions together with migrant and refugee background entrepreneurs

Social Hackathon is a hands-on learning opportunity and a great way to get inspired and work together with six talented social entrepreneurs from the Capacity community on their impact-driven projects.

We invite ETH students to co-design, co-develop and test solutions for a day in a high energy setting in answer to the technical questions presented. Teams will receive feedback on their prototypes from a panel of experts during the day and from the audience after their final pitches.

At the end of the event, we will have a social exhibition, showcasing Capacity entrepreneurs’ work while enjoying an international apéro.

The event is free of charge.
