Here’s a mesage from our friends at IsraelDev, CleanWeb Initiative and Terralab Ventures
On the 14-15 November 2013 we will be hosting the Dev4Dev CleanWeb Hackathon in Tel Aviv, Israel, an event that will focus on Developing Apps for the Developing World. The aim of the Dev4Dev CleanWeb Hackathon is to connect Israel’s leading entrepreneurial and technological community with the needs of the developing world.
We hope to harness the talent of the next generation of programmers and developers for addressing the most pressing needs of the developing world by raising awareness and forming partnerships with local stakeholders in these countries. For more information please visit www.dev4devcleanweb.com .
It is in this vein that we are reaching out to your organization, with a request for technological needs-statements that you believe could be addressed by applications developed at the Hackathon.
We invite your organization to e-mail email@example.com with identified technological needs. Each need-statements will be evaluated and accepted on a rolling-basis so please submit statements before October 10 2013. Should your request be approved by our advisory team we would be happy to work with you to refine the proposal in the run up to the Hackathon.
Format for Needs-Statements:
- The Need: What problem are you trying to solve?
- Any technical, sociological or contextual considerations
- Information about your organisation/the body who would implement the solution
The application need not be longer than 1-page and can be e-mailed or submitted online.

I am constantly on the lookout for opportunities that will benefit the CcHUB community. The date in your post says 10th October. I wanted to be sure it wasn’t a mistake.
You can still submit the statement and it will be considered. The Hackathon organizers are looking for problems in the developing world that they can solve with the power of the web.
