From a single unicorn startup in 2012 to over 34 a decade later, India has created an unrelenting rise in innovation. Blockchain and distributed ledgers are no different with many developers, startups, and enterprises interested in the space. Hedera, for instance, is governed by world-renowned India-based organizations like Tata Communications, Wipro, and the recent addition of IIT Madras. As fans of progressive innovation in the Web 3.0 space, at Lumos Labs, an innovation management startup, we’re always searching for ways to enable and accelerate innovators with the right incentives and support to grow. On that note, we’re excited to launch the Hedera India Hackathon 2021 for the Hedera ecosystem. We invite you to grab this opportunity to participate, learn from expert-led workshops, and reap the benefits with over $12,000 USD in total prizes.

The Hedera India Hackathon 2021 presented by Lumos Labs is a prime opportunity for the developers to:

  • Ideate, build, and launch a Hedera’s services driven solution

  • Establish connections with likeminded people and leading IT experts

  • Win up to $12,000 USD in prizes and ecosystem support

  • Build your career in the distributed ledger technology space

  • Make the most of Hedera with workshops and ecosystem support

Hackathon Tracks

The hackathon has the following tracks available for developers to choose to focus on, which will factor into judging:

  • Entertainment: Build an application within the context of gaming, media, or other entertainment industries.

  • Sustainability: As a carbon-negative network, Hedera is well suited for building sustainably-minded solutions, be it to reduce the carbon footprint of NFTs or manage carbon credits.

  • Finance: Solve the everyday challenges of people interacting with the financial world.


The top 10 projects that integrate Hedera will receive $200 USD each. The top 3 application builders will be awarded:

1st Place - $5,000 USD

2nd Place - $3,000 USD

3rd Place - $2,000 USD
