IDEAS THAT MATTER.

We're fighting together.

Our country needs help. And many enthusiasts, professionals and initiatives are already providing assistance both systematically and through improvisation, thus coming up with incredible things in a short amount of time. The aim of the hackathon is to help implement these ideas through financial support from the state and the involvement of mentors and, thanks to cooperation with the Czech Republic’s crisis-management staff, to share a list of needs that are currently the priorities for our country. In addition to ideas, we are looking for mentors and partners to support the hackathon.

Hackathon is oficially over.

How does it work?

Whether you already have an idea and you don’t know how to realise it or a product and you don’t know what to do next, we will get involved and support you so that we achieve a common goal, thus accelerating the implementation of projects that will help our society cope with the current crisis connected with the COVID-19 pandemic.
