Green Hackathon:

We're calling all environment and sustainability enthusiasts to help us create a momentous impact all around the world. #GreenHackathon aims to reshape our future with a focus on three main topics: Industrial Ecology, Alternative Energies, and Agribusiness

The Hackathon Design: 

The 2-phase Hackathon is held in 3 Cities: Cairo, Alexandria, Assuit, and Online before converging to the Final Hackathon in Cairo.  

During the first phase, Teams are required to submit a concept note with the business model attached. This business model should be presented through a 1-min pitch video and a pitch deck that doesn’t exceed 10 slides.

For the second phase, teams are required to work on developing an MVP for the product they have developed throughout the first phase. 

Date: 1-2 November

Phase 1 (The Ideation Phase): Alternative Energies

Developing a tech solution by understanding the use of different sources of energy consumption that would help mitigate the effects of fossil fuels on the environment. This could involve the use of energy in transportation, food production, the production of clothing and fabrics, etc..., in relation to how can the provided solutions create sustainable job opportunities for youth

Winners travel to Cairo the following weekend for the final stage. (Transportation is on us!)

Date: 8-9 November

Phase 2 (The Rapid Prototyping Phase):

Cairo: 3 topics under one roof

Prizes: 100,000 LE for each of the top 3 winners!
