Social Innovation Hackathon

Shaping a Culture of Belonging at Queen's University

The Social Innovation Hackathon is an engaging immersion into the world of social innovation and its implications for using business as a catalyst for social change. Participants will have the opportunity to work in teams to create innovative solutions for social impact challenges that growing dynamic organizations are facing today.

Teams will begin by reviewing a challenge provided by the organization participating in the event. They will have the day of the Hackathon to engage with the problem and brainstorm potential solutions. Teams will then provide a pitch deck presentation and pitch to a team of judges detailing their unique ideas and resolutions.

Participation is offered in-person and virtual, including Q&A sessions and final presentations.

This is an excellent opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills and sharpen critical thinking in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Financial award to 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place teams.
