Hackathons

Hackathons are often weekend long exercises that bring together innovators, entrepreneurs, and key stakeholders to help focus their energies towards solving a particular problem or building a solution. KCIL’s Civic Hacks shall be multiple themed Hackathons over the span of the year with a clear objective to bring the most relevant stakeholders to help brainstorm and develop creative and innovative solutions to a civic problem or challenge in the City. Hackathons are tentatively planned for May 2017, August 2017, and November
2017.
