About this event

GDSC@CMU presents the Google Solution Hackathon! First, we'll be doing an Ideathon -- no technical experience required -- where you can show off your ingenuity and entrepreneurship to a panel of judges all well-versed in startup culture and product launching. Then, we move into the Hackathon half where you turn your idea into reality with the support of Google Developer Technologies. The best teams will gain the support of our judges as well as the GDSC chapter to formally submit your product to Google's Solution Challenge, where Google will judge your project alongside submissions from all around the globe. The winners of the Solution Challenge get $3000 dollars in a cash prize and mentorship with a Google expert!
