Connections Events

Meet and mingle with the mentors!

Are you intrigued and want to find out what GovHack is all about? You are invited to a GovHack Connections event held near you! (Secure your spot!)

What’s in it for You? The GovHack crew from your region will give you an overview of the competition and answer any questions you may have. Learn more about official events in your region and all about youth, maker or special interest themed nodes. The best teams have a mix of skills, and this event is the perfect place to find a team to join.

GovHack is not just for geeks, but if you are not sure if it is for you, come along and find out more. Data Mentors will be in attendance to share their knowledge of open government data and to provide insight that could help incubate ideas to pursue during the competition. Tech Savvy mentors may even be available to share some tips and tricks to help you create winning concepts.
