Apply as a team or let us find you a good fit. Either way, get those LeadingAge HackFest applications submitted ASAP.
Tools. The tool you and your team develops could be an app, a website, an interactive online experience, or a device. Participants will have 1 day to design and build their tool. Tools don’t need to be fully developed or complete, but presentations should include a plan for how the project could be implemented and launched. Participants will keep intellectual property rights to anything they create during the hackathon.
Tools will be judged based on originality, usability, feasibility, design relevance, and on being ‘most
developed’ by the end of the session.
