Typically, a hackathon (a hacker neologism) is an event where teams of computer programmers collaborate and compete against each other to come up with the best solutions to a stated problem in a very short time frame (~24-72 hours).
A weekend Challenge is not for everyone. Only the most passionate and driven people make time in their busy schedules to participate and develop great ideas. These are the people you want to work with, solving the biggest healthcare challenges across the Continent Sometimes ideas formulated in a hackathon environment lack real-world market ‘fit’ due to the time constraints of a weekend. To mitigate that issue, we involve the people who would be using these innovations right from the beginning, ensuring the solutions developed are user centred, feasible, viable and desirable.
2020 will be the fourth year the challenge has been running, this African Healthcare Challenge directly supports development and innovation in healthcare for the African continent. It enables our high-calibre participants to discover and engage with a wide diversity of African healthcare opportunities in a fun and challenging environment that promotes collaboration, intelligence-sharing and innovation.
The African Healthcare Challenge attracts designers, students, coders, healthcare professionals, students, development experts, policymakers, investors and a whole range of people passionate about Africa. A large part of our audience are millennials across a multiplicity of countries and regions passionate about driving change and we offer them the opportunity to directly take action.
This is a great opportunity to interact with an often hard to reach demographic, a great way to get exposed to, and engage with, a highly skilled and motivated audience who are at the leading-edge of Global Health and International Development. We can offer branding and communication opportunities across our pre-event marketing campaigns and have a range of options available for sponsorship and support. Embark on a fruitful and long-term partnership with us and expose the benefits of your organisation to the magic we create.
