What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a place where the only thing limiting what you build is your own creativity – we’ll provide the rest. Stay up for 46 hours with the smartest people you’ll ever meet, building the coolest things you have created and chugging more Red Bull than you ever thought possible.

What should I create?

>You can build whatever you can dream of, whether that be a website with an amazing feature, a phone app, or a cool rad piece of hardware. (Soldering is NOT allowed!) You can bring an existing project or create something new. And come get it funded! 

Hacks are presented by creating your complete campaign. Use the video equipment we provide or make your own!

What are my options?

50% off platform fees for all participants

1. Take an existing idea, post on the CFP – Get Funded

2. Create a Product, Service or Non-Profit Initiative and build a campaign around it. 

3. Complete your Hack (app or otherwise) during the Hackathon and create a campaign around it within 15 days of the Hackathon. 

Team or individual?

You can sign up as a team or as an individual. If you’re an individual looking for team members, you will find tons of other smart people at the event to form a team.

Why join < fundhack /> ?

We will have awesome mentors to help you with your project. We will also have experts help you hack together a campaign to get your project funded.

Mentors will provide technology, video and business coaching throughout the event. 

When does the event end?

The final awards and closing ceremony will end at 3pm on Sunday, October 12th.

Free swag.
