With ten years of experience in organising hackathons, Estonian-based Garage48 together with the programme Accelerate Estonia put together an online hackathon in record time, in order to tackle the coronavirus pandemic crisis and emerge from it stronger than ever. At the time, no one could imagine that soon after the first event, they would be organising another with a global reach.
The Global Hack is a movement and the global tech community’s response to the Covid-19 crisis. Over the course of 2 months over 70 local crisis hacks were organised followed by a hackathon with a global reach. Kai Isand, the head organiser of the Global Hack, will be leading and moderating the discussion with two of the global changemakers – Ieva Vaitkevičiūtė (Lithuania), the founder and CEO of Act on Crisis and Sten-Erik Mägus (Estonia), the co-founder of MASC.
The discussion will deepdive into topics like: how to move quickly in a crisis situation, how governments and startups can work together to find and solve painpoints and how to redefine the their roles for long term impact.
