Join Techfugees, a global community of 15,000+ innovators and engineers building technology meeting refugees’ needs, and Schibsted, the Norwegian global media group, for a weekend of coding for and with refugees living in Norway. The event will bring refugees, asylum seekers, local NGOs, engineers, designers, social entrepreneurs and tech mentors together to build prototypes of sustainable tech solutions for refugees’ needs.

Throughout the hack, you will learn more about the needs of refugees, the challenges of NGOs and local government and will be able to pitch your tech solution directly to NGOs, local government and investors.

Techfugees, in partnership with Schibsted, will support you and your team with tech mentors, NGO representatives and case studies of refugee tech to help inspire you in building tech solutions that improve the situation of refugees.

The event space is limited to 100 places and we will have a waiting list ready for last minute cancellation.

The 3 winning teams will be invited to pitch their solution in front of a selected panel of CTOs, Investors and Government representatives as part of Oslo Innovation Week - and the final winner will be announced by Mike Butcher at the Opening of the Oslo Innovation Week Ceremony.

The winning team will receive Mentorship support from Northzone as well as desk spaces sponsored by Bakken&Bæck.
