Is the event limited to just software development?
Absolutely not! We need people with all types of skills to participate in the International Space Apps Challenge! Teams need project managers, designers, artists, educators, writers - anyone who can help advance the cause. You can definitely contribute! Participants in the event will collaborate to build software, open hardware, data visualization, and citizen science platform solutions that contribute to space exploration and solve global challenges that focus on improving life on earth. In fact, most teams will benefit from having non-programmers working with them.
Who is your fiscal sponsor?
Hacker Fund! Hacker Fund is a non-profit that does really awesome stuff, like hosting coding workshops and sending mentors to hackathons, but sometimes they manage the finances for hackathons such as Space Apps Next Gen, which leads to awesome connections to large companies and discounts through them being a 501(c)(3) public charity.
