Beyond the Pitch

How GiveBackHack Inspires Social Change through Entrepreneurship

GiveBackhack

4th Annual GiveBackHack

Have you ever wanted to be a part of the solution for issues in your community? GiveBackHack might be the answer.

GiveBackHack is a weekend-long event that brings together passionate community members to develop sustainable, technology-based solutions to some of our most pressing social issues, and they are gearing up for their 4th Annual Columbus event!

For the past few years, Rev1 has been excited to be a part of the GiveBackHack buzz. It makes sense that Rev1 Ventures and GiveBackHack connect – Rev1 helps companies build products that inspire people, and GiveBackHack helps the bring the community together to inspire change.

Those who complete GiveBackHack are offered the opportunity to participate in Rev1’s Customer Learning Lab, a three-day learning program designed to give entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs the advice, guidance, and tools to identify and validate great products and services.

How does the weekend work? Friday, April 27, passionate community members will pitch innovative ideas to solve the most pressing social issues in Columbus. Saturday, April 28, participants form teams and build upon ideas for a sustainable, technology-based business. On Sunday, April 29, the teams will pitch to a panel of judges for the opportunity to earn funding, mentorship and other resources to move forward with their solution.

We lend our support to organizations that fuel the fire of social entrepreneurship, and GiveBackHack does just that.

  • Thank you guys for the shout out here!

    I started working with Rev1 back in 2012 on Startup Weekend and the support we received through mentorship and space was instrumental in keeping that community thriving. We’re so grateful for your support of GiveBackHack! Rev1 is a wonderful resource for our startup community and the opportunity provided to GiveBackHack teams only further demonstrates that value in the community.
