The GEW Hackathon aims to bring in startups, developers, strategists, and thinkers to explore Digital opportunities and help solve pressing problems faced by large corporates and startups in key industry sectors. The Hackathon will focus on five key sectors: Education, Financial services, Gaming, Health, and Services.
A total cash prize of R500k will be awarded and each winner will receive R100k each. There is no guarantee that each sector will have a winner. It is plausible that a particular sector could have more than one winner, while another sector fails to secure a win.
Hackathon winners have an opportunity to join 22 On Sloane’s Catalytic (Accelerator) Programme where they can access up to R750k in funding (subject to terms and conditions).
22 On Sloane is the largest startup campus in Africa. The campus offers disruptive startups and innovative SMEs a complete turnkey solution to scale, from the initial idea all the way to commercialisation, funding opportunities and access to markets. Its aim is to nurture the entrepreneurial mindset, ensure their sustainability, and explore development of new industries and contribute towards job creation in Africa.
