Capital One: Gift the Code
The Gift the Code hackathon is a Capital One Canada initiative to provide local charities with a tech boost in a creative and innovative manner. With Hackworks’ help, Capital One has connected with the tech community and has created a successful recruiting pipeline of developers, data scientists, and product designers.
The Elevate team, working with founding partner TD, approached Hackworks to help create Toronto’s biggest hackathon. Over a 48-hour hackathon at MaRS, more than 500 hackers worked tirelessly rallying behind one theme: How can we use data and technology to make Toronto a more inclusive, safe and vibrant city in which to live and work.
