m2work South African Hackathon

This past weekend we played host to the South African leg of infoDev’s global m2work Hackathon.

We kicked off the event on Saturday morning and spent the rest of the weekend creating concepts and apps to solve unemployment through creating mobile micro work opportunities. Teams pushed straight through the night to get their presentations and prototypes ready for Sunday afternoon’s demo.

Over ten teams participated and produced solutions, all finding innovative ways of mobilizing an untapped work force to do micro jobs and earn some income.

We are very proud of everyone who participated in this very worthy event to raise awareness about unemployment and Micro Work.

mLab Southern Africa is happy to announce the winners of the #m2work Hackathon 2012:

BEST m2work APPLICATION: this prize is being awarded to two teams for developing the applications that best met the 5 judging criteria.
