George Hacks Launches the Innovators in Action Program

George Hacks launched the Innovators in Action program two weeks ago when we sent 7 students to VCU’s 3rd Annual HealthHacks. This was the event that inspired our founding team to start George Hacks and we were so excited to be able to send more students to compete this year!

In 2017, George Hacks founder, Konstantin Mitic ‘18, attended the annual VCU medical hackathon. During the event, he developed a solution that went on to receive a medal, but he didn’t know how to further implement these ideas. He wanted to continue the innovative process even after the event was finished, but didn’t know how. The solution was simple: George Hacks.
