Smart Aurangabad Hackathon is an advent for thinkers and innovators to design, develop and find smart ways to
make world a better place. It’s the aura for ideas and the inventions!
Art makes questions. Design makes solution. Technology makes possibility and Hackathon turns possibility to come in reality. The first edition of our innovation challange invites participants from across the nation to submit sustainable and scalable solutions to challenges from diverse domains.
The task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen, but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees!
