About Hackathon

A hackathon to save us all : this is our goal. #DFC wants to create a global impact through unique projects that rely on diversity. The world is currently in a state of constant crisis, and needs OUR best to survive. This is why we are launching this hackaton. Bringing together people from all around the world, brainstorm and come up with great ideas to make an impact are our main goals.

No matter if you are a student, company, agency, investor, university, or even a non-profit organization : we need you to produce a change.

This global event is 100% online and will take place on 5 days using three time zones : PST, GMT & UTC. You are requested to come up with the best idea to one of our challenge and try to win a prize !
