Approach

A mini-hackathon with an engaged community

Over the course of a 4 hour focussed hackathon, 15 participants worked together to generate new ideas to enable Enrich’s strategic objectives. The most promising ideas were built and tested as prototypes to assess their potential impact.

Impact

Fresh creative thinking

At the end of the hackathon, teams had come up with a number of bold and creative concepts that Enrich could take forward and pilot with their community.

As part of MAKE’s “Design for Impact” series, the Enrich hackathon was a pioneer event that mobilised the community and harnessed the the power of collaboration for social impact.
