The International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) will hold a ‘Coop-a-Thon’ during its Global Conference on ‘Cooperatives for Development’ in Kigali, Rwanda, on 15 October 2019. The initiative came as the ICA realized through a survey sent to members in 2018 that technology challenges showed up as one of the biggest obstacles faced by its members.

The ‘Coop-a-Thon’ will happen virtually and is open to teams made up of IT coops, IT professionals from ICA member organizations, and others who support coops.  Click here  to learn more and download the form to submit a challenge that technology could solve. The last date to submit the challenge form is 16 September 2019.


If you have any question about the contest, please contact Gretchen Hacquard at
