A hackathon is an exhilarating, competition-charged event that drives innovation and encourages entrepreneurial thinking. We imagine, organize, and execute hackathons.
Why host a hackathon?
Hackathons are where those with the passion to problem-solve, build something out of nothing. Engage the creative crowd and discover the road less travelled.
Technology is changing how we do business and connect with the world. Be part of this change by activating a tech-savvy community of enthusiasts to rally for your cause.
Realize the full value of your software solutions, gain developer trust and activate the community to open new growth opportunities.
Hackathons are a fantastic vehicle to position its hosts and sponsors as corporate changemakers by demonstrating honest investment in the social coding movement.
Hackathons are a hotbed for innovation. Participants' submissions may open up additional markets, customer bases, spawn new product lines or entire companies.
Hackathons allow employers to look beyond resumes and interviews to candidates’ product development capabilities, team dynamics and stress resistance.
