iCreate – Earth X 2020 Hackathon

This year, we celebrate the Golden Anniversary of Earth Day on Wednesday 22nd April – a day dedicated to our planet Earth.

A very appropriate moment for all of us to pause and think about the environment, most specifically in light of the current COVID19 pandemic roaring across the world, changing the physical environment as well as the social and business climate in which we operate.

iCreate – India’s largest tech innovation-based start-up institute partners with Earth X, the world’s largest organisation dedicated to the environment and National Geographic (THE Nat Geo that we’ve all grown up with) to bring you this very innovative ‘International virtual hackathon in the times of COVID19’.

The hackathon will be completely virtual. We know that virtual events can be a whole new hackathon experience, and we’re excited to try our first ever virtual hackathon with all of you.

Prizes: We’ll be offering an expanded prize pool!

  • First place will receive up to $1,500.
  • Second place will receive up to $1,000
  • Third place will receive up to $500

Benefits: Selected teams will be eligible to pitch their ideas to avail grants for prototype development
