“...think of designing solutions that will address a meta problem, so many nonprofits can benefit from those solutions. It'll benefit billions of people."

N. R. Narayana Murthy delivered the keynote in Bangalore on May 9, 2014 and Phanindra Sama followed with snippets from his journey with RedBus.in. In Mountain View, the hackathon was kicked-off after a fireside chat between Amit Singhal and Karl Mehta. These tech pioneers believed that technology can change the world and left the audience inspired with the possibilities of the impact they can create for billions of people!

“Give back to someone who wouldn’t repay you. (quoting Larry and Sergey’s philosophy on giving back)"

The electronic city hosted 160 participants while Silicon Valley saw about 150 participants. The Code for India team believes in initiatives to encourage women in tech, so we were glad to see women participants at the hackathon. Speaking of women, we had a 9-year old young lady partner with her father to build an application to enable and improve school children’s financial literacy. The father-daughter team won the Most Popular prize category in Mountain View.
