A Step Towards 

the Next Normal

Hackbang is a 4-day virtual hackathon. We are the platform that will enable connections between the thinkers, the doers, the movers and the shakers. If you have a great idea that solves the current challenges of Covid, this is the platform for you - work with a team and solve the challenges together and turn it into something viable and tangible. If you are an investor (whether from the private sector or the government) looking for the next big idea, this is the platform for you too because we might just have the team whose great idea you can help implement and back up financially. Hackbang will go down in history as the event that moved the needle, so we can safely latch on to a new life now and after the crisis.
Hackathon Mindanao

JUNE 26-29, 2020


The COVID-19 crisis has taken over your life, your business, your freedom. It’s pivot or perish guys. How do you want to respond? Hackbang invites YOU to put your skills, network and gifting to work.

It is unprecedented times we live in and we are all treading the real definition of VUCA: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. Our medical systems are collapsing; our governments and legislative systems are barely able to keep up with the challenges; our military systems are not fully trained to fight this battle, and so does our economy. Now is not the time to fan the flame of division and criticism. Now is the time to have a unified citizen response, to gather the collective human brain power, and by doing so foster relationships and co-create possibilities that can fight the effects of this pandemic.
Let's Do this Together!
