Join Dell for an interactive hack-a-thon that tasks teams of policymakers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and students, along with a “coach”, to design solutions to policy challenges faced by entrepreneurs running growing businesses. Following the hack, the teams will have five minutes to pitch their idea to a panel of experts including Massachusetts government officials as well as the wider audience attending the event. Then, the audience – you – will vote for the winning solution. The winning team will receive a Dell product and commitment from Dell to further develop the proposal.
Attendees will include entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, graduate students, policy experts, technology leaders, and government officials.
Teams will be formed to tackle the issues of reducing youth unemployment and supporting young entrepreneurs, supporting women entrepreneurs, civic technology, advancing STEAM education, and social and environmental entrepreneurship.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE ON A HACK TEAM, PLEASE ARRIVE AT 4:00pm.
