UGA Give Back Hack

31 March 2014
Personal Media, Public Good

As part of Thinc. Week 2014, the NMI is hosting UGA’s first ever Give-Back-Hack. In a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship here at UGA, we will spend 24-hours exploring the intersection between personal media and public good.

At midnight on Saturday, April 13th, the Give-Back-Hack will lock 5 teams of students away for 24 hours – we won’t release them until they have used their personal media skills to make Athens a better place. Teams will address important community problems such as hunger, homelessness, safety and mental health. Tired and weary, the students will present at Thinc.‘s Kick-Off Event Monday afternoon.

Students we need you – Apply now! Only 25 students will be selected to participate and receive the title “UGA Student Entrepreneur Fellow.” The event will last all day Sunday, April 13th (12:01A to 11:59P). We will feed you and keep you energized throughout. We promise it will be a great event!

The NMI thanks Thinc. at UGA for their partnership and the Verizon Foundation and Four Athens for their support.
