GlobalHack VI will bring together software developers, graphic designers, technologists, and entrepreneurs from around the world to solve a single civic technology problem centered around homelessness. Hundreds of participants across youth, collegiate, and pro divisions will work in teams to solve this problem by building software solutions over the course of an entire weekend.
$1 million in cash prizes will be awarded to the top teams, including $250,000 in follow-on funds that will be used to take the most promising prototypes generated at the event to market. GlobalHack VI will be held Friday, October 21 to Sunday, October 23, 2016, at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, MO, on the campus of Saint Louis University.
