TechWyns Camp 2023 is Accepting Proposals for Profit and Pro-Bono Nonprofit Software Solutions

    TechWyns Camp is now accepting proposals from Washington-area non-profits who are looking for pro-bono software solutions. In case you are not familiar with us, TechWyns Camp is a “hackathon for wider good,” initiative taking place over a weekend during the summer months (June to September) and during school summer vacations, where programmers, designers, and other software professionals donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations (and selected for-profit organizations). This software solution might be a bespoke mobile app, web site, games, desktop app, database or multimedia production or some other piece of software that the end users would like to have coded, designed, updated, or configured. TechWyns Camp 2023 is scheduled from Monday 12th June to Friday September 8th and will be hosted virtually and in-person to accommodate all participants. If your proposal is accepted, that’s when all the magic occurs! A team of software professionals dedicated to your project with a product manager will give their all during TechWyns Camp weekends to take your ideas and make them into a reality for the end users. Minimal POC will be at zero cost to non-profit organization. The process could involve:
  • Envisioning,
  • Architecture Design white boarding Sessions,
  • POC development,
  • MVP rollout,
  • productizing,
  • multi platform testing,
  • Fund round preparation,
  • Marketing,
  • Launch internally and publicly.
  • ..and more.
  And while all the magic will happen that weekends over summer months, a lot of preliminary work must be done before that time,
  • Including raising money from sponsors
  • Buying t-shirts, enrolling volunteers,
  • most importantly, reviewing the proposals to pick the projects that are both.
That’s why it’s important to get your proposal in soon.  

Our submission process is pretty simple:

Send an email to enquiries@techwyns.com with your proposal information including a number of detailed info about your organization and your proposal.

You should spend some time first coming up with a good idea for what you want us to work on. And do realize that while the event is at no cost to you, one of the requirements is that you need to be onsite during the TechWyns Camp event for several hours each day. For-profit and Non-profits are invited to submit proposals. We will send you the rules and guidelines for submitting proposals. Please make sure you read the rules and guidelines completely before you begin! The early bird deadline for proposals is June 4, 2021, but your chances of scoring a slot at TechWyns Camp 2023 are significantly better by getting your proposal in by the early bird deadline.
