The Make the Breast Pump Not Suck Hackathon kicks off with inspirational talks by top designers, CEOs of women’s health companies who are fighting stigma, and community organizers who trained moms to envision and build a breastfeeding-friendly community at scale.
It’s not just about the pump—participants will then roll up their sleeves and get to work designing telehealth lactation services, better nursing spaces, milk bank technology, and community-based interventions, in addition to hacking the breast pump.
The event is free and all meals are provided. However, due to limited space and high interest, there is an application process.
- February 1: Application open
- February 28: Application closes
- March 7: Notification of acceptance
Please only apply if you can commit to attend the full event from Friday, April 27 at 6pm to Sunday, April 28 at 5pm.
