ABOUT

WHAT IS HACKTHECRISIS?

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.
