What is hack the nu

NUVO Network is hosting our first hackathon, Hack The NU, in partnership with the United Way of Halton and Hamilton (UWHH), whose mission is to improve lives, build community and ignite action in our local communities.

Our goal is to foster creativity, innovation and solutions-based thinking while helping to build the next generation of volunteers and philanthropists. We will provide participants with a fun and productive learning environment so they can revel in their abilities and tackle real world problems.
