What It Is An afternoon designed to go deep with a favorite idea, or offer a new one, refine a program idea and pitch and help the top 5 teams/program ideas win $2500 each in prizes to help their program succeed! Timeline and FAQ for the Hackathon May 7th from Noon – 5 p.m.– RSVP
There are judges, and prize awards will be shark tank style, but we will crowd-source some of the prizes too.
We need your creative energy there to help brainstorm, and share refine some of these projects! A great opportunity to meet new friends as well.
We start with lunch, pick a project we’re interested in after hearing 28 second pitches, and with our feedback and a business accelerator’s facilitation, we will have some fun helping local community members plan the best program they can deliver. All are designed to transform Jewish San Diego in new and exciting ways.
Jewish projects for all ages including a local Urban Kibbutz, a do it yourself music broadcast program, Jewish Yoga, mindfulness and meditation classes for local Yoga enthusiasts and instructors, Inspiring Jewish social media for teens & millenials, a Yiddish hip/shabbat program, and even programs designed to combat hate and BDS on College campuses.
1. Identify program ideas that may successfully engage Jewish San Diego related to education, community, and connection.
2. Provide a space and a time for participants to develop solutions and make headway on programs of personal interest.
Some have asked who will be at the Hackathon. We’re happy to share with your permission! When you register for the Hackathon give us consent to share your contact information and we’ll make sure to get you a list before we meet on 5/7!
