FAQ
Can I apply as an individual? 
Absolutely! Once all participants have been selected, we will add everyone to a Slack channel. There, we ask that you talk to the other individual participants and find a team to join. We guarantee you’ll have great talent to choose from.
I’m a designer/operator/other non-technical person. Can I apply?
Yes. This year, we’re open to any and all applicants who want to create the future of mobility. Non-technical individuals that apply with a well-rounded team will be more likely to be selected than a solo applicant.
I participated in the last hackathon (dAppathon 2017). Can I apply for DV Hacks: Mobility?
Sure thing! We’d love to see familiar faces back for more.
Will I be reimbursed for travel?
If you are located more than 30 miles away from the BCGDV office, we will provide you with a hotel walking distance from our office. We will provide flights to and from LAX. Participants must arrive before noon on Friday, April 13 and depart after 5 pm on Sunday, April 15. Booking must be done through our travel portal to be reimbursed. The maximum reimbursable RT flight is $300 unless otherwise discussed.
