Maker Hackathon is the first hardware hackathon born in the Arab World, and aiming to travel all over the world. It is an initiative by Zoomaal, the leading crowdfunding platform from the Arab World.

A hardware hackathon is a 3-day competition, where participants are divided into teams of 4 to 5, each applying their skills in various disciplines including software and hardware development, business ideas, and product design to develop a hardware prototype, by the end of the 3 days.

Winners of the best prototypes will be awarded valuable prizes from Zoomaal and sponsors, as well as get support to turn their ideas and prototypes into reality through crowdfunding campaigns on Zoomaal and other global outreach opportunities!
