Student Event

Pakathon Boston is partnering with SAI, the Harvard Pakistan Student’s Group, and the HKS Pakistan Caucus this year to organize its annual ‘hackathon.’

Teams will work to create a solution for a social issue in Pakistan and work on a business plan to implement this solution. They’ve put together an amazing program; anyone who is passionate about using technology and business to address problems in developing countries should definitely attend.

More details and registration is here:

For those interesting in returning to Pakistan and starting their own ventures this is a no brainer (Pakathon has a wide network of investors and incubators as well as their own official Returner’s Program ) but even for others this would be a great networking and skill building opportunity – students and professionals from all over New England are coming, so this will be a great chance to meet like-minded people you would not have crossed paths with otherwise.

Teams with Harvard affiliates will also get a chance to compete in Harvard South Asia Institute’s Seed for Change: Pakistan competition ($7,500 prize) in May 2017!
