Code for Venezuela - April Hackathon

Code for Venezuela SF is organizing a hackathon that will take place in San Francisco, CA from April 12th through April 14th, 2019. We will host 50 participants locally and the event will also be open to remote participants.  

Through this event, we want to leverage technology and tech talent towards solving real challenges presented by our partner organizations.

We also hope that this serves as a way to foster a community of individuals that are interested in using technology for social good and care about the current situation of Venezuela.

In order to work in projects that will have a direct impact and continuity after the event, we have partnered with institutions from Venezuela to create a set of challenges to work on during the event.

You can expect challenges in these areas: Using data to analyze, understand and communicate the Venezuelan crisis, Digital products and platforms to connect the diaspora with the country and Bypassing internet censorship.

Why are we raising money? We need it to help with the organization of the event. Specifically  to bring some of  our guest speakers and partners from Venezuela and to provide food for the participants of the event.

Here's is the current event budget breakout .

It is a critical time for our country and we believe that if we are able to build a bridge between the talent in the Bay Area and the needs of the country, we could have a big impact.  Your help will be crucial to kick off these efforts.

Sincerely,

Code for Venezuela Team.
