About The Event
The Appathon works to educate the next generation of technologists, innovators, and leaders. From researchers to entrepreneurship trailblazers, this conference is a unique opportunity to interact with the leaders in the fields of AI and application development through workshops and panels. As part of this event, students will also have the chance to compete in a competition (ideathon), where they can submit business pitches and/or prototypes for an app that can have a real-world impact.

What is unique about this event?
Many organizations, especially during the COVID pandemic, have hosted online hackathons and summits. What makes this flagship Appathon event unique is its emphasis on idea creation for apps. The widespread impact an app can have on the world is unimaginable, and through our interactive workshops and prize-incentivized competition, students will delve into the world of application development.
