Meet The 28 Atlanta Area College Students Using Technology & Innovation To Hack The Violence

On Saturday, we welcomed 28 of the Atlanta’s top college students passionate about social change into our tribe of change makers with the Opening Day for Goodie College Innovation Lab #HackTheViolence, a program designed to turn college students into social impact tech startup founders. Their objective is to reduce violence 40% by the year 2020 using innovation. Paired with mentors, these amazing students began their “Hero’s Journey” by selecting violence subject-matter areas (in parentheses) to combat, identifying users, diagnosing problems, brainstorming product features, and storyboarding what the product looks like in a design thinking influenced Product-Market Fit workshop. Next, they’ll move onto the Hack The Violence hackathon where skills-based volunteers will take their ideas a few steps closer to reality.

Serve as their alley, and contribute to their mission by donating today.
