This is a Hackathon for Black women and allies to build technical projects, products, and solutions for themselves and or the Black community using low-code.
Build for us, build for the community, build with low-code.
Build For US – Track 1
The bill for us track is to encourage black women to build something for themselves whether that is a no-code app such as Adalo that encourages self-care. Or perhaps, build a cybersecurity course on Webflow. Maybe you will finally launch your new podcast about All of the latest software engineering tools.
Build For The Community – Track 2
Highly inspired by the effects of the protest following George Floyd’s death. As well as the global pandemic. Black businesses saw some of the most losses and experience some of the most lootings especially in the southern parts of the US. We want to encourage those who have always wanted to build a product a micro business a side project or simply become a founder to start a business that helps or that moves for the Black community. Perhaps this is an app that you build to help hair Stylist train their clients from afar. Or perhaps you have a sass idea that you wanted to work on and you just need to push, tools, and the money to get started. This track is for you.
Why Low Code?
The past few years and more so the past few months low code tools and solutions have proven to help students, job seekers, businesses, entrepreneurs, founders, and beyond to build 5X to 10x faster.
