The WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation is proud to host its inaugural cross-border hackathon on September 25-27, 2020. BorderHacks will inspire tech talent locally to get involved in our technology community, ultimately contributing to unlocking the potential of our future programmers, hackers, and designers with a focus on mobility and cross-border issues such as healthcare, logistics, and cybersecurity.
This event will be completely hosted online! Over 400 students are expected to join us on this three-day event, where all participants will be given 36 hours to come up with their greatest hack. The theme for this hackathon is Mobility! Students are free to interpret the theme however they want.
Participants will be given the opportunity to come up with their greatest creation that will be later presented and judged by a panel of qualified adjudicators and win top tech and cash prizes to be announced!
FREE educational events such as workshops to help hone and adopt new skills in the field of computer science are also on the agenda. We believe that these activities will give contestants a taste of both entrepreneurship and a feel for the work environment that they will soon find themselves.Apply to attend today!
