Mentoring at Hacking for Humanity Romania hackathon

We are so delighted to present you some of the amazing mentors who will advise the Hacking for Humanity’s teams during the weekend. We intend to create the best conditions for the teams so that they can build the best solutions to the social issues that the NGOs have worked so much to bring to our attention. At the Pre-Hack Day, both NGOs and participants have demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm and commitment to solving some of our society’s pressing issues by bringing together technology and social innovation.
