A report examining the existing and potential contribution of refugee entrepreneurs to the nation’s economy and society has found refugee entrepreneurs can provide significant economic benefits.
Techfugees Australia has announced its third hackathon, bringing together refugees and the tech community to find solutions to the refugee crisis. To be held in Sydney from November 5-6, Techfugees will facilitate the development of solutions aimed at helping refugees settle into the Australian community.
Though the tech community is constantly working on products, services, and events through which it hopes to make a difference in society, for whatever reason, the success rate of these efforts is often mixed. By having hackers learn about the problems they need to solve directly from the people who experienced them, this month’s Techfugees Hackathon aims to help tech teams develop real solutions to the issues facing refugees settled in Australia.
