It’s the largest virtual hackathon to help small businesses pivot to succeed in the COVID economy. It’s going to yield plenty of innovative ideas that business owners can use to emerge from the crisis with confidence. And the 48-hour event starts tomorrow and the contest grand finals will be held Saturday October 17th starting at 6pm PT.
