DC Climathon is held annually at George Washington University, in partnership with the University of the District of Columbia and the District Department of Energy and Environment. Climathon is a global movement, with 24-hour hackathon events held simultaneously worldwide to develop climate change solutions.
At the 24 hour event, participants will meet other innovators and entrepreneurs interested in launching a start-up to make an impact on the planet. Participants will form teams, and over the course of 24 hours hone their idea into a viable business model. At the end of the event, teams pitch their proposals to a team of expert judges. Winning teams can receive prizes ranging from cash to entrepreneurial training. Winning teams of GW students receive a bye into the second round of the GW New Venture Competition.
