Bootstrap Paradox (BSPx), a first of its kind hackathon, will give developers an opportunity to interact with the best of Blume Venture’s porfolio, like Dunzo, Unacademy, Locus, Milkbasket, Mechmocha, and Dataweave.
The problem statements that will be shared by these companies are not just about algorithms, but also about the passion to solve real-world problems with a touch of human element.
Most importantly, for the love for code! Developers will get the opportunity to interact with the best minds in technology, product (UI/UX), and data science.
Bootstrap Paradox is powered by Skillenza, a platform for enterprises to run challenges, evaluate professionals and hire them.
The hackathon is expected to receive participation from top tech talent across India on two online coding challenges to be organised on July 21 and 28 with Rs 1 lakh prize money. While, the top 10 per cent of these will be invited to participate in the offline event, with a significantly higher level of challenge and prize money.
During the event, participants will have the opportunity to interact with and be mentored by senior leadership from Blume portfolio companies and industry experts.
