Breast cancer has affected the lives of many Canadians, but you can make a difference by helping to raise awareness through ProtoHack.

ProtoHack’s Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Code-Free Hackathon for Innovation in Breast Cancer Awareness allows designers, developers, entrepreneurs and other industry leaders to come together to connect, collaborate, and create innovative solutions through prototyping and pitching.

Local entrepreneurs and start-ups, as well as Victory Square Labs and Launch Academy have partnered with San Francisco-based ProtoHack for the event. And what do you get at the end of the 12 hour hackathon? Prizes worth over $15,000 in patent protection, design and branding services, co-working space, and development work.

The best part: you don’t need coding or programming experience to participate.

Tickets cost $10 and can be found here.
