Join 300+ passionate students from around the world in building innovating solutions to the most pressing social impact challenges.
In March 2024, Global Spark is excited to host the 6th annual Hack the Globe with Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Microsoft, AON, Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, Behavioural Economics in Action at Rotman, Oxfam, the Aga Khan Foundation, and many other leading organizations.
HTG 2024 will be a hybrid event accessible to university students entirely online, with a chance to participate in-person at the BCG Toronto and London offices!
Unlike traditional hackathons, multidisciplinary teams will have 2 weeks to scope a problem and formulate an idea for a tech-based social enterprise with the support of topic experts and a dedicated mentor from BCG. Over $4,000 in value is available in prizes, including cash rewards, donation credits, and Microsoft hardware prizes.
No coding or prior hackathon experience necessary! Put your problem-solving, business acumen, and entrepreneurial spirit to the test!
