The Global Hack is an online hackathon designed to share and rapidly develop ideas for urgently needed solutions in the face of the current crisis, as well as to build resilience post-pandemic. The Global Hack has already drawn attention across the globe - covered by Forbes, Silicon Republic, GovInsider among others - and brought on board a fleet of world-class mentors, such as Silicon Valley’s tech superstar Steve Jurvetson and former President of Estonia Toomas Hendrik Ilves.


Participants: Individuals (over 18 years in age) form Teams (of minimum 2 members). All underage persons must participate under parental supervision.


You take part in the Hackathon with an idea developed from scratch or you can come with an existing product, but you need to develop it further (like a new feature) during this Hackathon.

When submitting your project (in the description field) before other things:

  • Describe the problem & target, who has this problem. Try to be as precise as possible.
  • What’s your solution? What do you want to build during the hackathon? It doesn’t need to be perfect, but realistic. Describe the technical and non-technical elements as best as you can.

By the end of the Hackathon Teams need to provide:

  • working prototype (will not accept any PowerPoint slides or any similar presentations)
  • a 2-minute demo video of the project and the prototype
