To All Innovators:

You are invited to the Asian Institute of Management’s first-ever development-centered hackathon entitled “MDM: Mobilizing Development Mechanisms Hackathon,” organized by the Stephen Zuellig Graduate School of Development Management (SZGSDM). It is a 24-hour intensive event, through which technologically-savvy teams of programmers, social entrepreneurs, and development practitioners conceptualize and create disruptive innovations bridging technology with development. There will be existing development problems, which includes issues related to health, disaster risk reduction, education, research, and equity, which you can choose from. We are looking for 100 participants, or 25 teams, to produce quality output that will be scalable and can be used by various government and non-government entities for positive social change.

The following are the development pitches:

Research and Development Connectivity - a LinkedIn type social site where researchers can connect and share ideas, collaborate on projects, and which will also act as a database of legit researchers.

Education - Innovative low-cost solutions to assess quality of teaching and learning of a class without physical observation in schools Labor and Unemployment - A technology-driven intervention that aims to equip the youth with higher level skills needed to adjust to the changing nature of jobs which is technology-driven.

Peace and Security - An app that can easily be accessible to anybody in terms of educating the public about the effects of terrorism and the danger of their recruitment.

Disaster Risk Reduction - A more effective and efficient response in locating victims of disaster taking into consideration the essence of time. A mechanism that provides for immediate medical care and provision of food, clothing and shelter to the victims of disaster until other government services are in place.

A technology-driven monitoring system (preferably mobile and computer based) which is low cost, farmer-friendly that lists the name of farmers beneficiaries in the affected areas; compares the target beneficiaries with actual beneficiaries including the area affected, volume of seeds. The system will help the department to easily identify the affected farmers and distribute the volume of seeds needed in the right place and at the right time.

Indigenous People and Mining - The pitch aims to look for a scientific or technological breakthrough that will allow the industry to provide social safeguards that will balance people, profit and the planet.
