Mercy Corps and Startup Weekend have joined forces to create a first-of-its kind event focused on solving some of the world’s toughest problems through technology and entrepreneurship, measured by solutions formulated from the boldest of ideas.

The 54-hour marathon event will be focused on developing tech tools for the greater good and creating viable social enterprises that can scale to address global needs.

Do to other obligations we’re not on one of the teams, we’re here volunteering helping to run the event.

Recognizing their common geographies and mission-related goals, SW and MC officially joined forces in May 2012 to develop events globally. To date the organizations have co-hosted events in Iraq, Palestinian Territories, and Haiti, with future events planned for Egypt, Libya and China.
