Today (September 18th) is the last day to apply for Opportunity Hack

"PayPal is excited to host ‘Opportunity Hackathon’ in San Jose for the 3rd straight year. Last year, we had some amazing results from the Opportunity Hack. We hope you will submit an application to join us for another impactful event!

 

Opportunity Hack strives to match highly-skilled volunteers (i.e. top-notch engineers and other professionals from PayPal, other local companies, and colleges) with nonprofit organizations (NPOs) that need technological solutions for critical challenges.  Our goals for Opportunity Hack are to solve existing problems for NPOs and to foster a connection with technologists that can extend beyond a single weekend. This year we will be giving out prizes to ideas with the most opportunity for impact. Participants at the hackathon would be voting to select the nonprofits with the best idea submission and the most engaged during the hackathon.

 

This will be the third year that we have run Opportunity Hack in San Jose and will be the 6th time we’ve done it worldwide."

The only website on this I can find is https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/opportunity-hack/non-profits which says "Non Profits" so seems to exclude most Social Ventures :-(

Apologies - the application link includes social ventures.
