Health + Tech + Student Hackers = Solutions
In collaboration with Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University, TechSquare Labs is presenting #HealthTechWeekend, June 23-25th. This event will expose young people (particularly those from underserved populations) ages 18-25 to avenues to solve the biggest challenges in health, using technology. Hackathon participants will come together to develop solutions to the challenges and barriers that disproportionately impact communities of color in America and beyond. Prizes awarded to the best group presentations!
FRIDAY night’s opening reception will also be dedicated to the graduates of the inaugural CodeStart cohort! These young people were selected to learn software development and entrepreneurship for one year under the guidance of TechSquare Labs. They will talk about where they were before #CodeStart and where they are headed now. TechSquare Labs will also formally announce their new #TechHireAtl initiative in partnership with Worksource Atlanta.
SATURDAY, the grind begins. For twenty-four hours, teams will ideate, think out of the box, design mockups, build wireframes and give insight on MOYO, a new mobile app and wearable platform and movement.
SUNDAY afternoon is the pitch event. The teams will present their work to a series of influential judges.
Oh, and did we mention? Enjoy tunes from DJ Teknology and DJ Julien Virgin all weekend long!
