Impact Tech and RiseTech Media connecting Cypriot Startups to Silicon Valley

AngelHack, one of the world's largest developer communities, is coming to Cyprus under the “Global Hackathon series” and supported by the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT)! The event will be hosted at CUT’s premises in Limassol on 7-8 July 2018.

The event is co-hosted and sponsored by Impact Tech LTD, leaders in Big Data and AI technology-based solutions and the disruptive digital media agency RiseTech Media. The hackathon will be hosted at Cyprus University of Technology in Limassol, Cyprus on July 7-8, 2018.

During the hackathon series, developers, designers and entrepreneurs get a chance to meet like-minded people and demonstrate their skills, while tech giants such as IBM, Amazon, Microsoft and Agora are on the lookout for great talent and ideas that can invest in or even make part of their business.

The AngelHack Challenge

The winning team will be invited to join AngelHack's HACKcelerator, a 12-week program where they will have the chance to further develop their prototype to a viable business model and pitch their idea to a pool of investors in Silicon Valley. To encourage social impact projects, the HACKcelerator will present five Code For A Cause Impact Awards to the teams whose technologies can be used for the benefit of local communities globally.

The ImpacTech Challenge

ImpacTech has started the prize pool at €1000 and they will add €1 for every share their competition post receives on Facebook facebook.com/impactechs .

The IBM Call for Code Challenge

The challenge is to improve logistics based on traffic and weather activity and use existing code developed by IBM to kickstart your solution or build your idea on other IBM Code patterns provided by the IBM Cloud.
