How to participate

Pitch Your Ideas on Sparkboard

As soon as you get your tickets for the hackathon, go to the Health Hackathon 2019 Hamilton Sparkboard, a website that we are using for the Hackathon where you can pitch your project ideas, describing them briefly and listing their requirements (designer, developer, medical expert, etc), or find a pitch/project idea that interests you or that matches your skills.

Need inspiration if you’re thinking about making a pitch? Check out last year’s Sparkboard. You can also visit previous Hacking Health Hackathon success stories.
