Though the company raised $1 million to set up an NYC office, Yellowdig is keeping true to its Philly roots: on Nov. 12 the company will rally college students at its Center City HQ for a hackathon on social learning.
At the gathering of technologists, Shaunak Roy’s edtech startup is looking to explore one simple question: does social learning work?

“Through this event, not only will you be able to prepare yourself better for the local hackathons like PennApps and DragonHacks, but you will also get access to be mentored by our seasoned professionals, and network with the panel of judges,” reads the event invite.
Here’s the rundown of the prizes:

  • 1st place: $1,000 and internships for the team
  • 2nd place: $500 and a mentorship lunch with Roy and VP of Engineering Shantanu Sharma
  • 3rd place: $250
Companies: Yellowdig
