USC Hack For Hope April 3-18th
Hey there! I hope you are keeping busy. The AI LA Community is helping facilitate a 2-week virtual hackathon hosted by the USC Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
Hack for Hope offers technical and non-technical, USC-affiliated students, faculty, staff, and alumni the opportunity to address critical challenges created by COVID-19.
Non-USC affiliated members can still submit a challenge, advise a team, or join a team with someone from USC.
Participants can choose one of two tracks:
Track 1 - Hack For Now: A solving sprint for those interested in delivering hope immediately. Choose a problem to solve – one that you identify or one brought to us by someone in the community. Then, build a prototype, iterating over two weeks to get quickly from idea to useful function. Track 1 teams can choose to be assigned a PMA.LA product manager with real-world experience – here to help you help others.
Final deliverable: a 2-minute video that shows and explains a team-built solution ready for immediate production or deployment
Track 2 - Hack For The Future: A fast walk into the future for those interested in building solutions and providing hope for the post-COVID-19 world. Envision what our society and economy will look like as we emerge from our current reality into a new normal, identifying a startup opportunity that addresses new needs.
Final deliverable: a 2-minute video pitch and deck that allows us to share your vision.
