Cranbury-based Infragistics, a provider of UX and UI tools for designers and developers, on Friday said it is partnering with the Stevens Venture Center, Stevens Institute of Technology’s tech incubator in Hoboken, to sponsor and support the COVID HealthHack II.
COVID HealthHack II is the second in a series of virtual hackathons organized by the Stevens Venture Center to address challenges presented by the global pandemic. The event will focus on how to reopen the economy by building innovative solutions to help people safely return to a new normal.
Teams participating in this event will develop projects in categories such as virtual experiences, crowd monitoring, telemedicine and symptom tracking.
As part of its support, Infragistics will be providing participants with access to its full line of UX/UI and analytics tools, including Ignite UI, Indigo, Design and Reveal.
“We are pleased to offer the resources of our global team to support an event that can have a real impact around the world. Our technology experts and developers are committed to sharing our tools and expertise to help create solutions that can positively impact people’s lives,” said Dean Guida, founder and chief executive officer of Infragistics. “We are proud to partner with the Stevens Venture Center’s COVID HealthHack II and we hope that our customers, partners and friends in the industry will join us in supporting this innovative event.”
The first COVID HealthHack, held in April, drew more than 100 participants and 15 submissions. Registration for the COVID HealthHack II, which kicks off on May 15, 2020, is currently open here.
The event is open to participants from around the world.
With the recent launch of its Ignite for Good Program, Infragistics has been working with organizations to help support hackathons, research and economic growth to aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.
