Hack for Good Leipzig

Needs a location

Many NGOs, associations and individuals also work hard to give to social, environmental or other sustainability causes. We believe that they should not only give but also receive, that society should give back to them.

This is why we are collaborating on a hackathon to support these organizations with solutions to help them focus more on delivering impact.

We're gathering not for profit organizations doing work on social, environmental and economic sustainability to share their work, frustrations and goals. With this information, attendees will form teams to build solutions for the non profit of their choice.

Register now to be part and do good!
