We hear the word a lot. While some may be quite familiar with it, others may not. So let’s define it. Hackathon is a meshing of “hack” and “marathon.” In a general sense, it’s a collaborative group that works together to solve problems using technology. For example, Onit united with Consilio and Adobe earlier this year to create the Evergreen Donation Emergency Network (EDEN) for a hackathon to solve complex COVID-19 problems. The app, built on Onit Apptitude (a workflow and business process automation platform), connects donors with excess supplies to organizations in need. You can view the EDEN demo here.
Hack the House will see participation from a mix of highly experienced corporate legal professionals working with partners and staff of Onit in a friendly competition to build highly effective process automation applications within various departments such as - compliance, human resources, IP, risk management, IT, marketing, operations.

Team Pro Bono

Team Pro Bono is here to deliver a championship app to our community and a hefty slice of defeat to the other teams ... at no cost of course! Not only do we have Karma on our side, but an average of almost 15 years legal ops and technology experience. Which is quite amazing considering none of us have aged past 24 years.
