The HACC Is where Innovation Starts

Gov. David Ige’s vision for the HACC when it began in 2015 included providing an opportunity for civic engagement with the local technology community in modernizing state functions and services for a more effective, efficient and open government.  As the HACC continues to evolve, it is building upon the success of last year’s theme of working towards state-wide sustainability using Hawaii Green Growth’s (HGG) Aloha + Dashboard.  This year, while HACC 2019 continues to foster HGG’s sustainability goals, it is expanding its focus to include community resiliency, designed to promote interaction and mutual benefit between State agencies and communities using a public-private partnership model.

The HACC will generate proof-of-concepts by student, amateur and professional coders to benefit community and State agencies to support sustainability at the idea-phase level, feeding into Hawai’i’s vibrant innovation ecosystem to promote solutions for community resilience, professional development, local job creation and building local businesses.  Through the HACC, Hawai’i is illustrating a collaboration approach to encourage public-private cooperation to achieve community resilience, emphasizing impact through creative and innovative solutions to challenges facing the state, its community and citizens.

The HACC breaks the mold of a traditional hackathon, which typically takes place over a single day or weekend. The HACC provides an expanded multi-week timeframe meant to encourage interaction between community teams and state department personnel, ultimately resulting in sustainable solutions that are appropriately matched with technologies and platforms in use or being considered by the state. Beginning at the HACC Kickoff, community participants form teams and select from a list of challenges.

The HACC is nationally recognized with the State IT Innovation of the Year award by StateScoop,
the leading government IT media company in the nation’s capital.
