A spark.
A small wish to change the world.
That’s all it takes to start building a product which might be the next big thing.

Are you a beginner dabbling with ‘Hello World’ lines of code, looking to delve into more? Or are you looking to use your tech prowess to build something for society? HackForTomorrow is the right place for anyone looking to make a difference with tech, be it an amateur learner or an expert coder.

HackForTomorrow (HFT), a week long hackathon held in association with Nest digital, aims to encourage the development of innovative technological solutions for societal issues. The hackathon, held as part of Excel 2021, the techno-managerial symposium of Govt. Model Engineering College, has received over 300 participants for each of its previous editions & has produced some brilliant projects in the past. If you’re looking to tackle the issues we face today with technology, then you’re in the right place!

What’s special about HackForTomorrow?
Ever since the pandemic hit & hackathons went into the online mode, much like everything else, we all missed out on some fun aspects of networking and co-working that happened during offline hackathons! HackForTomorrow looks to bring that back, by providing a co-working space for 50 people at our venue, for the last 24 hours of the hackathon. And, if you’re looking for some old-school in-person co-working with your team at midnight, after filling up on caffeine, you know the place to be at!

So, make use of these exciting opportunities and register for HackForTomorrow!
