Star-Hacks is a non-profit hackathon event organization co-founded by Shaun Munshi and Abhay Silina, as a subsidiary of the "Shooting Stars Foundation". The main goal of Star-Hacks is to provide people with a chance to pursue what interests them. It could be coding, medicine, dancing, social work, etc. This organization chooses to support the person in their passion by introducing them to STEM academics. Research shows that STEM work is useful and appreciated in any field, and reaps major benefits. What better way to achieve this than through hackathons?

Hackathons are typically 12-hour long event on brainstorming, coding, and solving problems that one faces in the real world. In this current age, we all believe to be living in the golden era of humanity. However, it is up to us, the dreamers and the innovators, to turn imagination into reality, and further society's growth. The good news is that Star-Hackshackathon doesn't warrant you to have any prior experience in coding: just bring any laptop if you have, its respective chargers, and a winner's mindset.  This hackathon in Bangalore would be an 8-hour event. At the hackathon, we will provide workshops from skilled techies in the workforce who will help boost your interest and outreach towards technology and it aspects. As Brian Tracy once said, "There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking".


This Bangalore Hackathon is in collaboration with Sparsha Trust.
