 = HACKATHON + ACCELERATOR + MACON + SOCIAL IMPACT

The MaconThon is a Hackathon infused Accelerator where we offer resources and classes to take individuals from idea to a social impact solution. The cohort receives different challenges in Macon to tackle.

To better understand hackathons and accelerators, hackathons are typically a day or a weekend where individuals and groups solve a challenge. Accelerators are programs that usually last three months and offer mentorship, classes, and end in a demo or pitch day. 

 

Our secret sauce is curating collaboration for local problem solving while providing resources and mentorship for participants. We aim to create a more robust infrastructure for local founders of color interested in developing tech-enabled community solutions by running this program.
