Can you introduce yourself as the Organizer?

Our slogan is Make Ideas Happen! The sole objective of hackX is to create the best platform for the innovative young minds of Sri Lanka to introduce and market their ideas. hackX is the place for an undergraduate to make their geekiest ideas a reality.

As a student body it has always been a great pleasure for us to, support and encourage our peer groups to become the innovator that they’ve always wanted to be, by creating a platform like hackX.

hackX 2018 does not have a specified theme but open for all technology based innovative ideas. The idea could be a solution for an existing issues, or it could be any technology oriented product or a service.
