CapTech and Chick-fil-A Partner for Hackathon with Atlanta College Students


CapTech has partnered with Chick-fil-A to provide technological expertise around a variety of technologies that Atlanta-area college students will use in a Hackathon. The overall goal of the event is to help Chick-fil-A improve their customer experience, overall productivity, or food safety.

The Hackathon will take place at Chick-fil-A's Innovation Center in Georgia Tech's Technology Square from November 2 - November 4, 2018.

For this Hackathon, CapTech is providing technology coaches to create the environments for the students to work in and give them guidance during the building phase of the Hackathon. CapTech is also providing each group with a business coach who will help them define and focus on the business problem at hand and make their final presentation and pitch.

"CapTech is thrilled to work with Chick-fil-A on this Hackathon innovation challenge," says Boyd Christian, Atlanta Office Director. "We love helping our clients leverage the latest technologies to deliver business results and amazing customer experiences. A bonus here is we're working with the next generation of talent in the Atlanta community as well."

Randomly assigned to one of five teams, are 33 students from Georgia Tech, Spellman College, Morehouse College and Atlanta Union College participating in the inaugural Hackathon. CapTech and Chick-fil-A plan to have similar events in the future.
