Brum City Drive 2017 Hackathon – some of the team members including Sarah Crawley, i-SE, Ted Ryan and Pauline Roche, RnR

April Hack at Impact Hub Birmingham

Having written about the need for exploration events and hack days in our sector, we were delighted to work on this hack event organised by local social enterprise experts, i-SE as part of the 3rd annual Brum City Drive, celebrating Birmingham social enterprises.

1st Brum City Drive Hackathon, [WAKELET] sponsored by Wates Group (@WatesGroup), looked at hacking entrenched social challenges around the built environment and homelessness.


Facilitated by our Managing director Pauline Roche (@paulineroche), and enabled by i-SE CEO Sarah Crawley (@SarahCrawleyise), the event and the pre-event were held at Impact Hub Birmingham.

We were joined by subject matter experts Tony Bhajam (@TonyBhajam) of youth engagement agency Beatfreeks and Kathryn Lennon-Johnson (@BESSProgramme) from Built Environment Skills in Schools (BESS)
