Hacking for Humanity 2023

Experience The Power of Young, Strong, and Brilliant Teams.

Connect with fellow like-minded women from the tech industry and work on solutions towards making lives better by the means of tech. We might be less in numbers, but we’re no less in capability. This year, Hacking for Humanity is co-organized with the SHEQUAL Foundation and Women in Big Data Nepal and will take place in person from February 10 to 12 (Fri-Sun), 2023.

Who Can Join?

We invite every female across Nepal who wants to learn, test out her wild ideas, work in teams with fellow women from across the country, build and test out prototypes, and ultimately make a positive impact through the means of technology. This includes young women from all walks of life.

Participation for the event is FREE and open to females or individuals with non-binary identity only. The participants must be at least 16 years old at the time of registration and be able to attend the event in person in Kathmandu, Nepal.

What To Build?

Participating teams will be guided through a design process and supported by mentors to build a viable prototype or solution for the given challenge. The process consists of the following parts:

  1. DISCOVERY: understand the challenge, explore the scope, and prioritize a specific area of the problem scope
  2. IDEATION: brainstorm potential solutions, iterate over ideas & map out results, and settle on one idea to explore further as a prototype
  3. PROTOTYPING: define the solution on a high level, map out workflows, create mockups, sketch user interfaces, build a prototype
  4. TESTING: test the prototype/solution in the wild, sit together with other teams, explain the prototype & gather feedback
  5. IMPROVE: based on the testing feedback do 1-2 rounds of improvements on your prototype

One prototype per team will be submitted through Devpost & be presented in the final pitch.
