Our Hackathon/Design Sprint methodology

Developed first at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a tried-and-true method for finding solutions to challenges. Bringing that methodology to students, you create teams of 2-8 to develop, validate and engineer solutions to problems in our communities. All this takes place in one high intensity and productive weekend where each team has 24-48h to produce a solution. We call them "Hackathons"!

about us

We're two high school friends, fired up about leveling the playing field for everyone. We are passionate about helping the underdog and creating solutions to solve problems in our communities. In the process, we hope to spotlight sustainable projects started by young trailblazers like us, making a positive dent in the world. With our can-do attitude and relentless perseverance, we dare to imagine a world that's better for all and get our peers to team up and turn this vision into a shared reality.
