Acorn Aspirations in partnership with Global Entrepreneurship Week is running a 2-day hackathon/start-up style event where 100 young people aged 12-19 will collaborate with mentors from the TechCity community to develop tech start-ups that solve social problems in their local communities and worldwide.
#AcornHack2016 will unlock young people’s entrepreneurial potential by inspiring them to get creative with coding and digital technology, as well as attend masterclass workshops in digital marketing, branding, APIs, lean UX and Business Model Canvas.
The purpose of this event is to equip young people with the tools that will enable them to become change-makers and entrepreneurs of their own lives.
