We had an awesome CityHack18 – thanks to the 75 disruptors, innovators and hackers, 40 brilliant mentors, 5 amazing event support organisations and 4 of London’s biggest city organisations providing their challenges and all facilitated by the amazing Alejandro Saucedo! We gave away 3 amazing team prizes and heard some innovative ideas. And importantly we raised over £780 for Construction Youth Trust. A big thank you to everyone who played a part in making it such a successful weekend.
