HACK FOR GROWTH

I4G Community Challenge

The I4G Community Challenge is a quarterly coding/design challenge that aims to assist novice programmers/designers in tackling local difficulties in their communities. As you strive to solve a problem, it allows you to share your knowledge and interact with other coders and designers.

Hack for Growth Series 1

At I4G we noticed a common problem among several of our community members. Almost every organiser are so keen on the tools to promote their events. Having a local platform where users can create and share personalised DP would increase their campaign reach and also give their events more visibility. The site can also include a comments system and likes features for ranking. Sensing an opportunity to help others with their event campaign, we created a community challenge that will help in exploring possible solutions as part of our program at I4G.
