Why Restart India?
RestartIndia Online Hackathon 2020 is an initiative for building solutions around problems that arose due to the ongoing COVID- 19 pandemic.
RestartIndia Hackathon invites techies from India’s student and professionals community to adopt the Think→Ideate→Code→Build→Deploy framework on their solutions to fight the problems running rampant.Given the massive disruption caused by pandemic on the Indian economy and the people, there is a strong need to orchestrate an organised move to fight and prevent the Indian economy from capsizing. And as it is, we’ve seen unemployment figures in India rise by 20% and nearly 140 million people across various sectors losing employment during the lockdown within a month. We believe it's more important than ever to think about the future and make a positive difference for all us Indians. .
- India will never return to the way that it was; together, we can bring about change and invent a bright new future.
