MISSION STATEMENT

Real innovation is best achieved through having huge diversity and facilitating the innovation ecosystem through engaging events.

With our community of over 15,000 hackathoners, we aim to create a decentralised hackathon platform, incubator engine and accelerator program aimed to empower innovators, students, mentors, web 3.0 hackers, entrepreneurs, investors, organisations and institutions, to collaborate and make informed decisions to deliver on a wide spectrum of innovations based on global hackathon challenges.

Join the innovators of tomorrow.

WHY DAO?

A DAO, or “Decentralized Autonomous Organization,” is a community-led entity with no central authority. It is fully autonomous and transparent: smart contracts lay the foundational rules, execute the agreed upon decisions, and at any point, proposals, voting, and even the very code itself can be publicly audited.
 
For hackathon participants:
  • There is no robust, accessible and decentralised platform that genuinely rewards (and pays) hackers and makers for their contributions.

For hackathon clients (organisations and institutions):
  • There are few opportunities to align themselves with web 3.0 developers and makers, and address their tech talent shortages. Also, there is a shortage of genuine, long term projects in the blockchain ecosystem.

For investors:
  • Due to lack of transparency, great solutions that come out of hackathons rarely get to commercialise. Investors are always looking to jump in early for better returns for investible solutions, which hackathons are exceptional at producing.
