The LeadingAge HackFest is a 2-day event that challenges teams of 4-6 participants to “Engage with Age” by creating a technology-driven tool aimed at improving the lives of older adults and their families. Tools may include software applications, websites, interactive online experiences, or devices.
The LeadingAge HackFest will take place at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, October 18-20, 2014, in conjunction with the LeadingAge Annual Meeting and Expo.
We invite you to apply to be part of this exciting event where you will meet students and professionals from around the country and where you will expand your network in the field of aging services.
Following the LeadingAge HackFest, all teams will present their completed tools at the LeadingAge Expo on Monday, October 20, 2014, to over 8,000 attendees.
You can apply to participate as an individual or as a team.
