WeGrow Project hackathon Details

The WeGrow Project hackathon, which is slated for the 13th -15th July 2021, will be held in Accra and will provide participants with the opportunity to build solutions that directly solve challenges faced in cocoa-producing regions of Ghana, and become active participants in the technological evolution of the industry.

The three days fully residential events will encompass design thinking sprints, small presentations to the MEST team of experts, rapid prototyping and a final showcase where the winning teams(s) will be selected. Applicants must be able to dedicate the entire three days to the event.

Successful applicants will be placed into teams of 3 based on their qualifications and core issues they will be addressing. The winning team will receive a 7 incubation programme to continue building out their solution.

The hackathon will be taking place in Accra, and therefore participants applying from outside of the city will be responsible for their own transport to and from the city.

Accommodations will be provided throughout the duration of the three-day event (starting from the 12th).

The last day will end at 2 pm to enable participants’ return to their homes.
