Chhalaang Hack

Challenge Over


Social Share


Held on the 10th of December in Mumbai, we are bringing the most talented women under one roof, to solve challenging problems set by some of our biggest portfolio startups. These startups include - Turtlemint, Webengage, IDfy, Tookitaki, and Jai Kisan. This is aimed at helping women become a stronger part of the startup ecosystem and we truly believe in the impact that they make.

In the race for market share, revenue, and valuation, companies often forget the bigger picture - how having a diverse workforce is the path to creating truly remarkable, well-rounded businesses. The Chhalaang Hack is a reminder to all startups, that diversity is not just a ratio, but has a far-reaching impact on everything they do. This is why the hackathon has a unique structure - with 5 different problem statements for you to choose from.

Being a part of the Chhalaang Hack opens up opportunities, not only to win prizes and goodie bags, but to also interact with leading tech startups and seasoned technology professionals who will advise you on your problem statements. Your work will be closely evaluated by every participating startup, and they are very excited to explore career opportunities for excelling women in tech!
