Building the next generation of tech talent.

GlobalHack gives students hands-on experiences around computer science. We get students excited about computer programming by showing them how fun, creative, and empowering coding can be.

Hacking our way to a better future.

Our world has no shortage of real problems to solve that affect our everyday lives and those of future generations. These large-scale issues span across cities, industries, time zones, and cultures. We believe technology can play a critical role in a building a better future by bringing smart, talented, people together to solve the world’s most pressing problems.

At GlobalHack VI, you’ll get to work on one of these problems. Whether it’s making bus routes more efficient, food distribution more effective, or governments more transparent, we’ll introduce the selected project during our Opening Ceremony on Friday, October 21. Selected participants will have an opportunity to work with us to ensure the top prototypes developed are implemented.
