Events / Columbus 2019

Overview

Have you ever wanted to be a part of the solution for issues in your community? Have you ever had an idea to solve those issues? GiveBackHack is your next step. Attend to partner up with the community and find the resources to make ideas into a reality.

Friday, passionate community members (that’s you!) pitch innovative ideas to solve the most pressing social issues in Columbus. Saturday, participants form teams and build upon ideas for a sustainable, technology-based business. Sunday night, teams will pitch to a panel of judges for the opportunity to earn funding, mentorship and other resources to move forward with their solution.

Your ticket for the weekend includes:

  • Meals all weekend
  • GiveBackHack t-shirt
  • Surprises and swag from our sponsors and community partners
  • Mentorship by local social entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, venture capitalists, tech execs and more
  • An opportunity to change your community for the better.
