Globe empowers youth to connect the nation with #Globe5GHackathon

It’s been more than a year since the start of the pandemic and even the most forward-thinking people were genuinely unprepared for the challenges of these unprecedented times. Globe believes that through technology, many people, especially the youth, have connected with others and even come up with innovative solutions to modern problems.

In partnership with Animo Labs of De La Salle University-Manila, Globe has launched #Globe5GHackathon, the biggest hackathon event in the country last April 27. Kicking off on Virtual Hangouts, students and young professionals from all over the country are invited to attend enablement workshops to inspire them to think out of the box and reinvent their power to create change today and for future generations through Globe’s 5G technology.

“Globe believes that the youth can unlock the nation’s potential through breakthrough innovations. By giving them a platform and the right tools to turn their ideas into reality, they can create lasting impact through the proper use of 5G technology,” said Issa Guevarra-Cabreira, Globe Chief Commercial Officer.

The workshops, slated to happen between May 21 and June 4, 2021, will give participants the chance to be coached and mentored by industry experts on 5G technology and innovation.  They will then be able to cultivate their ideas and bring them to life through a nationwide pitch   from June 21 to 25, 2021. Winning teams will get exciting prizes and get the opportunity to have their ideas funded by one of Globe’s partners and 917Ventures, Globe’s largest corporate venture builder. Awarding of winners is on September 3, 2021.

The 5G Hackathon is part of the telco’s continuous efforts to create a #FirstWorldNetwork in the country.

The company strongly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9 which highlights the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. Globe is committed to upholding the 10 United Nations Global Compact principles and 10 UN SDGs.
