Hack-Diary: Day 3

Published by Ocean Generation \ February 10, 2019 4:57 pm

The first full day of our Dadlihack saw tech teams both in Antigua and internationally start to bring their ideas to life. The theme this year “Infrastructure and resilience in the face of climate change” has sewed the seed for a multitude of innovative ideas and solutions. On the last day of the Hackathon, the final 3-minute pitches will be showcased to our judging panel and the winning team will be awarded $5000.

Throughout the day, teams had access to world-class resources and mentorship from leading professionals from the world of tech and academia. Workshops and one-on-one sessions fuelled the day and excited young team members that had the opportunity to gain excellent business insights such as pitching your business, sourcing funding and finding your niche in a market.

Local Antiguans, well known for their entrepreneurial spirit enjoyed an afternoon of free and invaluable lectures from representatives from Royal Mail, Sony, and MIT. Turnout was a mix of team members and local business owners simply looking to broaden their horizons and make the most of such a unique experience in the region.

Ocean Generation also had an eye-opening opportunity to hear first hand how climate change is affecting vulnerable communities on small island developing states and highlighted the importance of opportunities where some of the greatest challenges remain. Pitches will be in front of government officials, local powerhouses in infrastructure and connectivity and a wider global audience of people hungry to support the vital change these islands need to safeguard their future.
