What we're about

FaithTech Waterloo is a community for people interested in the intersection of faith and technology. We often invite speakers that provide a unique perspective on this interaction. We engage in projects which see technology solving real-world problems in Jesus' name.

FaithTech is a movement within major tech cities that seeks to bridge the gap between faith and technology.

FaithTech Waterloo 24H Hackathon

Communitech

Join us in Kitchener Waterloo for 24 hours of building innovative tech solutions to local and global problems. We're bringing together the collective skills of Christian technologists, entrepreneurs and anyone else desiring to put their faith and talents to work for the cause of God's Kingdom. We believe that together we can create technologies to address significant issues impacting families, churches, the local community and the world. The 2019 Hackathon builds on the success of the previous FaithTech and Indigitous hackathons that have been hosted in over 32 cities and 12 countries. These events have gathered over 4000 technologists and created hundreds of projects with Kingdom impact. Now, it's time to help release the talent and passion of KW! Whether you are a skilled technologist, a marketing professional, a non-profit leader, a project manager or just someone who wants to put their faith into action we need you! We're linking up with some great partner agencies who will be pitching problems to us and we're looking forward to having you bring the projects and issues you are passionate about to the men and women with skills to help solve them.

FAQs Q: Do I need to know how to code or be in a tech related field? A: Absolutely not! We need people with a variety of skills across a number of disciplines.
