Last Year,

The Hackathon 2018

In December 2018, Ooredoo Myanmar and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Myanmar organized the nation’s first Hackathon with the objective of promoting innovation and entrepreneurship with a social impact that can help implement SDGs. Out of more than 100 participants (37 teams), three winning teams, two from Yangon and one from Mandalay, were awarded with the grand prize and access to the incubation program, which helped them turn their ideas into actual products and bring them into the market. Meet the winners here.
