10×10 is a three-day hackathon that brings together some of the future’s most promising young entrepreneurs to tackle a compelling problem facing the global community. Named for the number of countries sending participants as well as the number of teams competing, 10×10 will take place September 20-23 during the GEC2 in Split, Croatia.
Designed to inspire and rally the next generation of entrepreneurs, the goals of 10×10 are much larger than simply launching startup solutions to a global problem. 10×10 aims to equip the international community of young people with the tools to build the next generation of startups. When the competition concludes competitors will have launched a business, established relationships with their peers around the world, and gained new perspectives on entrepreneurship to share with their home communities.
Incredible things happen when you gather 70 promising young people from around the world in one place! Teams must draw from their cultural diversity, energy, and specific skill sets to tackle real world problems and create marketable solutions. 10×10 aims to inspire and rally the next generation of entrepreneurs to solve the world’s problems: one startup at a time.
