Upcoming Event

The CARISCA Innovation Lab has innovation as one of its pillars. A hackathon is a tool that can be used to drive sustained innovation and crowdsource solutions to address real-life business problems and social issues. 

Why a hackathon?

Currently, the lab is searching for innovative ideas and projects that are student engineered to help drive the lab into its vision as a hub for supply chain innovation and creativity in Ghana, West Africa, and beyond. Hackathons have some clear advantages over traditional methods of hunting for ideas and talents. They are inclusive, agile, and promote multidisciplinary collaboration. They have shorter innovation cycles and are better suited for addressing fast-changing consumer demands.
