What's a hackathon? Something Google, Microsoft and Apple do in Silicon Valley for brilliant IT ideas.
Segue to Brisbane Australia, add Indigenous charities First Nations Foundation, AILC, The Streets Movement and SevGen and you get genius IT solutions to help charities reach more people. The vision of Dean Foley at Barayamal, an Indigenous entrepreneur, business incubator and accelerator was behind this BRILLIANT idea. 60 IT business and marketing people turned up to volunteer at this event over a weekend.
An app to help people buying a car work out if they are getting a good deal or a bad deal based on interest rates, terms and insurance? How handy is that???
First Nations Foundation on the cutting edge, hackers and hustlers helping us along...the impact of our Foundation just took off exponentially.
Mark down the date. FNF went digital today. We are going to start helping thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people master their money skills.
Picture this: the amazing skills of the digital world coming together with Indigenous charities. What do you get? HUGE opportunities to grow the impact of community work!
First Nations Foundation will be at the first Give Backathon in Brisbane on 20 May 2017. Organised by Barayamal, a business incubator/accelerator business run by Aboriginal entrepreneur Dean Foley, four lucky Indigenous charities will be treated to the IT genius and skills of over 70 participants, volunteering their time for good causes.
