Our mission is to solve accessibilty challenges in cities around the world using the global startup community!


Let’s create a world that includes people of diverse ability!

What is Hack Access?

Hack Access is a platform which connects accessibility innovators from around the world to share solutions and knowledge about accessibility innovation. Our flagship Hack Access Dublin hackathon brings our network of accessibility innovators together with our partners to find new solutions to accessibility challenges.

How do we work?

Our Hack Access Program works with partners from various domains of the environment, the disability community, public sector organisations and technology businesses and empowers them to take innovative action to create a more inclusive world.
