Events / Philadelphia 2018 / 2019


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 our community. 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:

  • Access to an event of motivated, ambitious individuals who want to create change – just like yourself
  • A framework to take social impact issues through a validation process into sustainable, scalable solutions
  • Mentorship by local social entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, venture capitalists, tech execs and more
  • Resources to help ideas move forward during and after the weekend
  • A community of support during and after the event
  • Meals all weekend
  • GiveBackHack t-shirt
  • Surprises and swag from our sponsors and community partners
  • An opportunity to change your community for the better
