This program has two Tracks :
1) Fast Track:The fast track is for individuals, initiatives, companies, etc. that have a ready or almost-ready solution for the proposed challenge and have very specific support needs to finish implementing the solution.

2) Ideas Track:The ideas track is for individuals who have ideas for solutions that address the hackathon’s challenge, but these ideas are not implemented. Individuals who have skills like developers, designers, data analysts, etc. will also apply in the idea track to form teams with idea holders later at the next stage
