Accountability Lab is hosting the third HackCorruption event to identify and support talented individuals from the civic tech, CSO, and activist arenas, to build innovative solutions to combat corruption. The hackathon is supported by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the U.S. Department of State and the USAID Countering Transnational Corruption Grand Challenge for Development, in partnership with the Center for International Private Enterprise and Development Gateway. Our Latin American regional hackathon will take place in Bogotá, Colombia, from 18 – 20 August. Seventy-five changemakers from Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Mexico and the Dominican Republic will work together in teams of five over a three-day period. Participants will receive fully-funded trips to participate in the event. Applications are currently closed.
Seven winning teams with the most promising ideas will receive additional financial support of up to $10,000, mentorship, and ongoing training to help them build out their ideas. They will also participate in a 3-day intensive in-person boot camp in Colombia in October.
