She said that it is her mission to create a role model for people’s collaboration and collaborative creation.
Snur Hamid, co-founder of Japan Hackathon and Assistant Chair of KUIEC, was interviewed by Al Jazeera TV. In this 10-minute interview, Snur said the hackathon is a competition for people with technical skills and people with different qualifications to come together and find a problem or solution to multiple problems and solve them in just hours or days of teamwork. After that, she talked about how she started planning a hackathon project because she had the same entrepreneurial spirit as Kanako Akagi, the founder of KUIEC. Entrepreneurship is a skill that is very much needed at the moment in Japan for several reasons.
1. Japan’s population is over 1/4 of the population (according to 2014 data)
2. Japan ranks second in terms of quality of life and safety in the world, but Japan lags behind in technological progress and economics. This is why China is ahead of Japan in AI and e-government in 2019.
3. In Japanese society, the definition of success is still a person with an academic background and a degree. Therefore, the government is trying to encourage young people to become more involved in startups, business development and creativity by organizing these events.
She and the Japanese government and the teams working to make this happen, especially the Kurds who join the group as event planners, organizers and supporters, and these two countries working together to make something happen.
We are very proud of her interview and we really appreciate all the sponsors and supporters of this event.
