We're bringing together 128 bright, passionate students to tackle the most pressing global development challenges, inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With mentorship and workshops from organizations including BCG and Google, you'll be working in multidisciplinary teams of 4 to build innovative solutions using both business and technical acumen. We encourage students from all backgrounds and experience levels to apply!
Your team will be paired up with a BCG mentor at Kickoff and have 2 weeks to scope out a problem and formulate an idea for a tech-based social enterprise. The kickoff will feature a keynote speaker and connect you with mentors, sponsors, and representatives from global NGOs. During the 24-hour hack, your team will build a technical prototype and business strategy and pitch to panels of expert judges.
Hack the Globe will be your hub to connect to the brightest tech and business talent working on the most pressing global development challenges. You’ll have a chance to speak, recruit and mentor hackers, judge solutions, host a workshop, demo an API, and more.
If you are excited by our mission, interested in global engineering, and want to help make Hack the Globe a huge success, join our team! We will be accepting volunteers of all backgrounds and experiences on a rolling basis.
