Challenge Overview

Hack the Crisis

Pivothon is an online hackathon for startups founders who find themselves needing to adapt their ventures due to the pandemic.

The weekend event allows founders to validate, plan and pitch their pivot strategy by meeting and engaging with serial entrepreneurs, mentors, investors, market experts and customers.  Ultimately, creating and validating an efficient pivot plan, which can take weeks to design, in a matter of days. 

In the challenging seas of COVID-19, we're designing Pivothon to bring the right kind of opportunities to startups, to help them turn their sails around and navigate their venture onto scalable waters.
