Wait, what the what? Tell me more!

Think textbook hackathon, involving a weekend of ideation, MVP product development, presenting ideas, and some amount of coding. Now add to that the prospect of doing all of that with driven teams (who are predominantly women), kickass mentors (many of them women again), and unlimited caffeine. Oh, the theme for the hackathon is "Solving everyday problems in businesses", and the sub-themes are Productivity, Collaboration, and Content Management.

Neat! Turning the diversity table is reason enough for me to jump in. But is there anything more in it for me?

There is. By participating in WTF, apart from a weekend of learnings from some of the best thought leaders in town and building your next business idea, you also get a chance to win a total prize money worth Rs. 2 lakhs. :)

I must admit, this just keeps getting better. I don't mean to sound skeptical, but what's the catch?

Well, it's more of a rule than a catch: your team should contain a maximum of 4 members (and a minimum of, well 1, duh). In case of a mixed entry (men and women), your team should have more women than men, and it should also be led by a woman (hit us up if you can't form a team of your own and we'll help you with it).

That's a reasonable ask and consider me sold! Just name the time and place, will you?

It's on the 23rd and 24th of June, 2018 (Saturday and Sunday), from 9 AM - 9 PM (timings are flexible, of course), at Chargebee's office (4th floor, Block B, SP Infocity, MGR Salai, Perungudi, Chennai, to be precise).

Count me in. Anything else that I should know about?

Yes, just a few more deets. Let me break it down:

  • The registration ends on June 10th, 2018. You can write to us at wtf@chargebee.com in case you have this absolutely fantastic idea and you’d like to present it, but cannot register for the hackathon.
  • If your team is traveling from outside Chennai, your accommodation is on us - just select the accommodation field in the registration form. If you're a mother and would like to bring along your child, we can make arrangements for that as well. Please write to us at wtf@chargebee.com.
  • If you have this ground-breaking idea that doesn’t fall in any of the themes mentioned above, and you would want a platform to showcase that, well, you can. We have wildcard entries for 2 teams to present ideas and solutions outside predefined themes.
Noted. Now, where do I sign up?

Hit here for registration, or write to us at wtf@chargebee.com in case of any questions and we'll get back to you ASAP.
