The Emory Ideathon says
The Emory Ideathon will connect you with other passionate individuals to build and implement solutions to real-world problems. The two day event will take place April 11-12 at Emory University and will feature outstanding professionals from Atlanta nonprofits and businesses committed to positive change.

On Saturday, you will be introduced to the problem statements, hear a talk from one of our guest speakers, and have the opportunity to network to form teams and meet our advisors. We will have workshops and lectures throughout the day where you can learn from the best. Finally, on Sunday, we will hold two rounds of competition where teams will pitch their ideas to our judges. At our final ceremony, the top 3 teams in each category will present, and during the keynote presentation, the judges will deliberate over the winning solutions in each category. We will announce the winners, award prizes, and send everyone home to rejoice and rejuvenate.
