The Techfugees Paris Chapter is made up of a group of active and engaged members from the French tech and entrepreneurial communities all looking for solutions to improve the lives of refugees in Europe. As a first step towards achieving this, we will be hosting France’s FIRST Techfugees Hackathon on the 12th and 13th of March 2016 at Le Wagon with an estimated 60 participants. Our aim is to create a space where ideas can become reality; a forum where people put forward proposals on how to solve the challenges faced by refugees; and where we help them to access tech talent, investment and advice in order to make these projects sustainable and purposeful.
