47 million people live with dementia worldwide – 750,000 in Canada alone – with global numbers expected to reach 75 million by 2030. Much effort goes towards the search for a cure that may be decades away, but millions today face overwhelming, heartbreaking challenges daily. The point of DementiaHack is to create products that improve lives today.
Saturday November 7 to Monday November 9, 2015
George Brown College Waterfront Campus | 51 Dockside Dr, Toronto, ON
Participants. Hundreds of hardware and software developers, designers, health professionals, project managers, entrepreneurs and others motivated by a sense of duty and moral drive to help mitigate this ballooning global concern will form teams and apply to participate in the hackathon. Technical, business and subject matter expert mentors from partners and sponsors will actively support the approximately 250 participants before and during the competition.
Publicity. DementiaHack in 2015 will garner significant local and international exposure, as well as critical acclaim with strong partnerships and a dedicated public relations team. The anticipated result will be prominent news and media coverage, celebrity endorsement and great press generated by the star-power afforded by partnering with Facebook and the UK Government.
