10×10 is a three-day hackathon open to developers, designers, and non-technical people who want the chance to create original solutions to improve education for millions worldwide!
Innovative technology is poised to revolutionize the way people learn on a global level. With countries from around the world being represented on teams, we want the diversity in cultures and experience to contribute to new perspectives on such a universal subject as education. Topics within education are endless, but here are some critical challenges that teams may choose to explore: • Access to education • Quality of education • Funding of education • Entrepreneurial education • Access to mentors • Access to education across borders
Designed to inspire and rally the next generation of entrepreneurs, the goals of 10×10 are much larger than simply launching startup solutions to a global problem. 10×10 aims to equip the international community of young people with the tools to build the next generation of startups. When the competition concludes competitors will have launched a business, established relationships with their peers around the world, and gained new perspectives on entrepreneurship to share with their home communities.
Incredible things happen when you gather 70 promising young people from around the world in one place! Teams must draw from their cultural diversity, energy, and specific skill sets to tackle real world problems and create marketable solutions. 10×10 aims to inspire and rally the next generation of entrepreneurs to hack education, one startup at a time.
