The BigIdea

At NextBigWhat hackathon, we have always focused on actionable ideas and hacks that can be covered into PoCs (and eventually, startups!). If you are sitting on an idea, looking to grow the existing one – the NextBigWhat hackathon is a perfect place to be.
The hackathon doesn’t end with the hackathon
We will work closely with selected hackers after the hackathon and have them demo a working prototype @UnPluggd ! Nothing like ideation -> massive launch in 3 weeks.
Imagine!!

What Can I Hack Around?

A) Your own idea.
B) A few selected Indian startup APIs.
C) ofcourse, relevant APIs and frameworks that you want to use.
