Hackathon

DDHub Organises issue based hackathon that brings IT professionals and other stakeholders to brainstorm and develop IT based solution to identified problems. In addition to an IT based hackathon, we also organise policy hackathon in which we invite professionals and other stakeholders to brainstorm on a policy gap and develop a high thought policy suggestion to the problems. Some of the recent Hackathon event organised by DDHub in partnership with our partners are;

  • CVE Hackathon: In partnership with Equal Access International (American NGO working on peace building and strategic communication), we organized a hackathon targeting viable tech based solutions that can support in countering violent extremism bedevilling the Northern part of Nigeria. We selected participants from across the 19 Northern states who were engaged in critical thinking and brainstorming sessions to come up with CVE solution(s). At the end of the event, four of the solutions were identified as viable and selected for incubation.
  • Nigeria IT Policy Hackathon: DDHub in partnership with Blue Sapphire Hub and the Nigerian Information Technology Development Agency, the ICT are implementing arm of the Federal Ministry of Communication, held a one-day policy hackathon with the aim of reviewing and making input into the Nigerian IT and Entrepreneurship policy.
