Carondelet Ventures Launches 1st School Hackathon

In February 2020, Carondelet Ventures hosted our first ever Hackathon where students had a chance to not just learn about being an entrepreneur, but actually be an entrepreneur.
  • Carondelet Ventures 2020 Hackathon Participants

Teams formed at the Hackathon and worked together to solve challenges faced by teens in our community: lack of sleep, college pressure, and parent/teen communication.

Using design thinking, teams created an original product or service to solve the problem, prototype and test their solution, and pitched it to a panel of real-world experts interested in funding their project. The team with the best pitch earned money and will get expert help to turn their idea into a real business.

All the students that participated took a risk on a new event, and walked away with an amazing experience in collaboration, design thinking, and entrepreneurship.
