What is a Hack-A-Thon?
Maryland needs creative, outside-of-the-box thinking to devise policies that will help combat the economic strife small businesses are facing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to create an environment for experts to work together to develop workable, functioning solutions, the Small Business Development Center and the University of Maryland sponsored hack-a-thon with bipartisan support from Maryland State Senators
On September 17th, teams came together to formulate ideas that could become policy. In the weeks that followed, teams worked together to polish their proposals.
On October 21, 2020, the teams presented their pitch concept LIVE before a bipartisan group of legislators.
