FAQs

#Hackathon 2020

e-Zest Hackathons are a 24-hour nonstop event where teams will work on their ideas. As this year we are hosting the event virtually, the entire event will have designated sessions and programs which the participants must attend over this 24-hour duration to be eligible.

Attendees from all backgrounds, genders, age groups, and geographies are welcome to participate in the Hackathon. Basically, we welcome anyone who can code to participate.

Apart from the prizes and the experience, there’s a number of benefits to participating in Hackathons:

  • The learning
  • Wider network
  • Beefing up your resume
  • Attracting investors
  • Making a difference
  • Having fun
  • A functioning laptop or desktop (hardware)
  • Functioning webcam and audio device
  • Softwares / tools required during the Hackathon
  • High speed internet connectivity

Note: e-Zest will not provide any software development tools, game engines or purchase licenses for any of the participants.

No, datasets will not be provided for any use case.

Will each team have mentors?

Although each team will not have a designated mentor, teams can reach out to mentors for any help or queries. We will be scheduling breakout sessions and meetings to help team members get enough time with industry experts to showcase their solution and get expert guidance.

How will I receive my prize?

Winning teams will be provided with the winner's certificate which is issued to each candidate on their registered email ID. Each certificate will be digitally signed by the representatives. There is no country restriction but you must be eligible to receive prizes (in case you win) and you are responsible for paying any taxes on the prize winnings. The amount will be deposited to the bank account provided.

#StartupBootup 2020

If you love tinkering with those lines of code, if you think Neo should take over the world, if how systems work intrigues you, then Hackathon is your place to shine. It is a place where principles of programming, smart logic and knowledge of your chosen platform to code come together.
