Event: Operations, Logistics and Communication



Hack for Good is a 2 days non-stop development marathon organized by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to foster the development of technological solutions to social challenges. In 2018 the hackathon evolved to a full-program including ideation, bootcamp and presence at the Web Summit.

Programmers, designers and entrepreneurs work together to develop apps, websites, platforms or even prototypes that translate into true innovative and scalable solutions for real problems, in an event that also wishes to strengthen the connection between the technological sector (and its professionals) and the social sector.

Gulbenkian Foundation believes that technology is a potentiator of innovative solutions to the main social worldwide and nationwide problems. Due to the big diversity of these problems, a new topic is explored in each edition.

The 3 last editions generated more than 900 registrations, translated into 478 participants and +95 projects.
