The DCU Ryan Academy for entrepreneurs will be hosting this Hackathon in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland, the Hackathon provides a fantastic opportunity for nominated future leaders to hothouse their leadership skills – communications, marketing, team-building, negotiating, pitching, presenting, to name a few – to network in a fun, yet competitive, environment and to create innovative solutions.
