AWARD & BOOTCAMP
During the hackathon the teams will work hard not only to have the best solution for the challenges but also to win the prize. The hackathon will award only one team, with a prize money of 1.500€ that must be used by the team to implement the developed solution.
As an extra for the most motivated, the PWIT hackathon will also award the opportunity to participate at a Bootcamp, kindly sponsored by the HACK FOR GOOD GULBENKIAN. The Bootcamp will take place on October 19, at the Porto Innovation Hub, and will be a full day of hands-on activities that will allow all the participants to learn, experience and apply new tools and knowledge to their tech solutions.
More news on the Bootcamp coming soon. For now, register to participate at the hackathon!
