The Cameroonian startup community brings the Hack the Crisis movement to Cameroon. The corona virus affects our society as a whole and brings along unseen, yet very real societal challenges. As a result, the tech and startup world come together to launch a public platform to create dedicated solutions during an online hackathon: HACK THE CRISIS. Inspired by previous initiatives in other countries, the Cameroonian edition will be an intense weekend during which several teams will work remotely on various societal problems, all of which are linked to the corona crisis. This public online event invites developers, innovative companies, tech players, creatives, and everyone who wants to join forces to, virtually, put the minds together and come up with innovative solutions to counter this crisis.
We want to solve challenges in economic, medical, educational, logistic, social or psychological nature and anything else that you see as a challenge in quarantine life! Submit your challenge now.
We are inviting all the creators, IT specialists, companies, project managers & everyone to participate and show us how you would solve various challenges through creative production and application of technology.
You can develop where you feel more comfortable... Your bedroom, the kitchen, the sofa, the bathroom... But please STAY AT HOME! We will soon update you with how to connect with the rest of the community!
