The Grassroots Addressing and Identity Network (GAIN) hackathon is an opportunity for developers to build software solutions that drive social impact, with the aim of tackling some of the challenges related to addressing and identity management in Africa.
The hackathon welcomes innovations by entrepreneurs based in Africa or from the diaspora developed with a focus on addressing Africa’s local challenges. The challenge is open to all developers, with support from any technology companies and platforms.
Winners at the hackathon will be supported with interest-free grants, mentorship and exposure tours that will exponentially increase their chances at success. The programme will culminate in an award event where winners will be awarded. This event is designed to bring together innovators, regulators and key government players.
