MISSION STATEMENT

We want to re-imagine the traditional hackathons as a decentralised "Innovate to Earn" game system that more equitably rewards all participants, mentors and volunteers for their contributions, to deliver world class hackathons, and produce investible solutions.

Our accompanying DAO and accelerator program will empower innovators, students, mentors, web3 hackers, entrepreneurs, investors and organisations to collaborate and accelerate even faster.


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.
