Makers Day: Aid

Dec 15th - 17th @ No Moss Co

Thank you to everyone who attended Makers: Aid Dec 2018.

We had some wonderful ideas come through our doors! With mentors and presenters from Generation Entrepreneur, InsideSherpa, American Express, Cause Corps and Project Academy, as well as over 30 attendees, this was our biggest and best Makers hackathon yet!

Congratulations to ConnectAid  who took home first place with $150 cash and 6 weeks of consulting from Makers to get their business idea off the ground. ConnectAid won with the idea to create 'Uber for aged care services' where the elderly in need of care can get immediate help with daily tasks from qualified professionals.

Makers: Aid

Are you ready to solve some of the world’s biggest problems? Do you have a solution that improves society socially, technologically or economically?

Today, startups around the world are racing to create solutions that impact how people deliver aid and how accessible aid is. From using artificial intelligence to provide humanitarian aid to leveraging VR to help veterans recover from PTSD to creating services that accommodate micro-volunteering, these solutions are undoubtedly making the world a better place. If you have an idea, bring it to the attention of the people.

This is a chance to network with other people who are passionate about solving real world problems. Over the weekend, you'll get the opportunity to learn, ideate and create your solutions, with the guidance of mentors and industry experts.

To all the coders, activists, innovators and change-makers, we’re looking for you. Makers: Aid is the next instalment of our innovation and incubation programs focused on empowering people to make the change they want to see.
