Hackathon Kick-Off: This vital session will be live-streamed on lablab.ai's Twitch channel. The recording will be later made available on Discord. Visit the event page for the timing details.
Team Formation: If you haven't yet formed a team, we encourage you to do so either prior to the event or immediately after the Kick-Off presentation. You can find like-minded participants by posting in the "LOOKING FOR A TEAM" section on our Discord server.
Team Size: Please note that each team must not exceed a maximum of five participants. This ensures a fair distribution of roles and responsibilities among team members.
Individual Participation: While we recommend team collaborations for a richer hackathon experience, individual participation is also welcome. You're free to take on the challenge by yourself if you prefer.
Pro Tip: Teams composed of individuals with a diverse array of skills often produce the most groundbreaking solutions. If you are a developer, consider seeking out team members with design or business expertise to create a well-rounded team.
Mentor Support: During the Hackathon, mentors will be available to provide constructive feedback and guidance. Engage with them by using the “Calling for Help” feature on your team’s page or by posting in the
#ineedhelpchannel on Discord and tagging
@Mentor. Post-Kick-Off, an email will be sent to you with a document containing scheduling links for 1:1 mentor calls (not obligatory).

We are eagerly looking forward to your contributions and wish you the best of luck in this endeavor. For any questions or additional information, feel free to reach out to us.
