Make a difference by taking part in Dunedin's first ImpactNPO Hackathon

Tuesday October 16, 2018

What is ImpactNPO?

First and foremost we aim to help local non-profits. NPOs often have quite a lot of IT challenges. Through this, you may find that you meet new people from different companies or industries, find contacts if you're looking for work, or get to step outside of your comfort zone and learn something new through a weekend project. 

Or just have a fun weekend working as part of a team to deliver something that is really useful to the community!   Sweet stuff!

What can we expect as results for the NPOs?"

This depends on you, your team and the needs of your chosen NPO! Over the many successful weekends we have run, we have helped numerous NPOs with websites, IT infrastructure, design, branding, content as well as general advice. For a list of some of our accomplishments, and the NPOs that we have helped during the past weekends, have a look on our website: impactnpo.org

To be part of this amazing weekend, all you need to do is....... Get a ticket right here!  

The weekend starts on Friday 9th of November from 6 pm to 8 pm, with networking, charity introductions, and team forming. You will be volunteering your weekend (Saturday 10th of November and Sunday 11th of November, and we will be providing the food and drinks all weekend to keep you well fed and energised!

The Charities that will be attending the event will be announced soon.
