Frequently asked questions
- What is AngelHack?
AngelHack organizes a global hackathon competition, where you can learn new tools, connect with friends, and do what you love to do best, HACK! Our hackathons usually bring together 200+ attendees ( 70% developers) and focus on keeping a fun engineering environment to keep your creative juices flowing.
- What should I build?
Create a prototype of a new idea that you believe solves a big problem. Winning teams normally hack something that they’ve been wanting to build for a long time. AngelHack is a launchpad for these types of ideas. Judges will pick a winner based on which hack fills the biggest void they see in the market and from there your startup dreams are off to the races.
- What are the rules?
All code must be FRESH – that’s how we keep these things fair. Prior to the hackathon you can create your wireframes, logo, and user flows. You can even build hardware. But to make things completely fair all code must be laid down at AngelHack. Other than that, most anything goes. You can work with friends in other cities,use any languages or open-source libraries you’d like, even integrate in hardware. Full details at www.angelhack.com/rules
- What is the schedule
- What are demos like
You’ll have 2 minutes to pitch to judges with the support of A/V, microphone, and a projector. Judges will judge you on completeness, novelty of the idea, and faith they have in your team being able to execute on it.
- What if I just want to hack?
Then hack your little heart out my friend. We’re happy to have you take part in our shenanigans. The #1 reason people attend is to see friends, network with potential co-founders, and enjoy the free noms we have going on. The prizes aren’t bad either.
- What happens if I win?
You’ll be accepted into AngelHack’s Accelerator Program (10wk’s locally) and invited to San Francisco for 2 weeks of investor events including Global Demo Day, Startup Bash, TechCrunch Disrupt, and other VIP and investor events that we have in store. September 1-15, 2013
