Connecticut is at a pivotal point. When equity gaps continue to grow and technological advancements march on the result is an even larger divide.
What happens if these two worlds connected? Many community organizations have taken a grass roots approach to solving this problem, so we ask, “Can technology and social enterprise address inequality in our state?” The “Small State, Big Debate: Hackathon” aims to engage community organizations, technology, and social entrepreneurs in ways that extend beyond business as usual and create solutions for the problems that are contributing to the equity gaps affecting Connecticut’s communities.
Another incentive? One group will be selected to receive a $1,000 prize to help advance the proposed solution.
