Participant Testimonials

Over 20 projects have participated in our hackathon. Here's what participants have said about their experience:
"We came in with a somewhat developed idea, but the hackathon helped us refine it into a comprehensive concept. We understood how to connect all the elements and design and measure the impact. We also learned how to align our business with the desired impact. It was incredible! Thanks for providing ideas on digitization. We are now reviewing and evaluating them in terms of costs and outcomes. It feels like you've unleashed our creativity and diversified our product options. You are inspiring! I am amazed by your intelligence and interest in every participant. Thank you for being there and creating a supportive atmosphere. You are professionals we aspire to be like. And a special shoutout for your authenticity!"

"The information about the principles was presented in a structured and understandable manner. The role of each principle in achieving impact goals, especially the importance of scalability, became clear. It was amazing to see so many enthusiastic people in the moment. The material presented during the hackathon had a well-thought-out structure. I have limited experience in digitization, but thanks to the hackathon, I now have a better understanding of the possibilities of using digital tools in social projects. The idea of gifts was fantastic! Thank you! Your care, interest, and sincere involvement were evident throughout the hackathon."

"Theoretical information followed immediately by practice, homework, karma points, and adherence to timing were top-notch. Expert circles were great and motivating. It was fantastic that the information was duplicated in the channel, and there was always feedback. Thank you so much! We were stuck in our project; people didn't understand what we were doing. Thanks to the hackathon, we gained understanding ourselves and now have tools to move forward. We have new ideas. And thank you for the support and advice 💚"

Who are the organizers?

Hello! We are Collab team. We create effective digital products for social impact and assist with the digital transformation of traditional social programs.
While working on our social products, we have developed principles for an effective social program that we believe are valuable to share with every social project.
One shining example of applying our solutions is the educational game Rybakov School Award, aimed at creating school communities. By applying these principles, we transformed a traditional competition into an educational game and achieved the following results:
The cost of reaching one beneficiary decreased by 10 times: from $27 to $2.3.
Efficiency increased by 15 times: from 20 communities per year to 300 per season.
Breakthrough innovative digital tools were developed (game in a chatbot, diagnostic tool).
Categories of beneficiaries and their precise values were established: from 90,000+ active users of digital products to 493,000 beneficiaries from the communities overall in 2021-2022.
The game received over five national and international awards.
Now, we want other social programs and projects to harness the power of technology and advanced content to increase their efficiency and expand their impact.
