Heads Up : Hackathon


To bring the maximum productivity out of Hackathon, we have structured the series in 3 events.
HEADS UP - Gives the overview of whole event and what is expected from the participants. This is the time when we release two 'problem statements'.
PITCH - Participants pitch their ideas to our panelist and get access to final stage < CODE/NOW > i.e. Hackathon.
HACKATHON - Hacking begins!


Innovation can come from any corner, this is the sole reason for keeping this event completely free and open. The most innovative idea should get opportunity to get showcased.

By solving these problems, we would actually solve our own day-to-day problems. This is quite a motivation in solving our own problem.

The idea can be a potential startup, and together we can make it possible. Solution for some retail outlet
