Social Gatherings for Good: Give Back Hack

April 29 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Have you ever had an idea to solve an issue in our community? GiveBackHack is the next step. Community members of all backgrounds who are eager to make an impact on the city around them will meet and exchange ideas. The crowd favorties will be identified and teams will form around them. Participants will then spend the weekend mentored by top social entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, venture capitalists and prominent business men/women as they vet their ideas and build them into real products – physical products, smartphone applications, websites and anything else that will innovate on the issues we face in Columbus. More information about the event can be found here.

What we will be doing: Attend the community presentation Sunday night to learn about all the projects from the GiveBackHack weekend. 

When: Sunday, April 29

Where: We will meet at 4:00 pm for a drink at Platform Beer Co. before heading over to watch the presentation at Columbus College of Art & Design, which will begin at 5:00 pm
