If we work together we can accelerate solutions to COVID-19 and its impact on our society.”
Projects that can be found on the resource hub, include: MIT’s Beat the Pandemic Hackathon, the State of New York’s Tech SWAT Team and the Code Life Ventilator challenge.
“We are calling on everyone, everywhere to participate,” said Cotichini. “The HeroX platform is in a unique position to leverage the collective intelligence of a wide network of individuals with COVID-19 focused challenges. By bringing together resources, on one easy-to-access platform, our hope is that challenges can be solved efficiently and quickly, to help mitigate these difficult times.”
