Our hackathon is an extraordinary platform where innovation meets inspiration. It's an immersive experience that transcends the conventional boundaries of problem-solving. It is a 2-3 day competition and networking event where students from universities across the UAE will work together in groups to pitch their business ideas, and a panel of judges will choose the winners who will receive a prestigious award. On the last day, there is a netwoking event by the name of "mentor mixer" where students can talk to and possibly receive internships and advice from experienced mentors.
