Hackathon 2017

What is ChangeMakers'ON hackathonabout?

ChangeMakers’ON is the very first International social hackathon – made with passion, love and good will of experienced partners from all over the Europe. It is not only an event – it’s also a movement which was created to empower young and initiative adults to create social good and innovations. ChangeMakers’ON doesn’t like small talks and ideas “on the paper”. ChangeMakers’ON was born to have a REAL RESULT in your hands. In other words – Bring (in) your Idea – Enjoy your time working hard during weekend – Bring (out) your social business – Become social entrepreneur ; ) Would you like to join us? : )

Bring (IN) your social innovation – Enjoy YOUR time working hard

Bring (OUT) your social business – BECOME social entrepreneur
