4 years. More than 250 hackathons. More than 72 cities around the globe. We’ve seen it all. And from all of these events, we’ve noticed one thing: Anyone. Can. Code.
Age, race, gender, experience level, it doesn’t matter. Passion and dedication is what you need to create apps and technologies that have never been imagined before. Implementation and creativity are what differentiate you. Mind and skill are what conquer all.

By joining an AngelHack hackathon, you are becoming part of a global, connected community of coders, innovators, and changemakers.
Beyond that, an AngelHack hackathon offers the following:
Never been to an AngelHack hackathon? You’re in for a treat! Here’s what you can expect.
Schedule subject to awesome changes. Stay Tuned!
We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably stick by these:
Have a damn good time!
What should I build?
Let your gut guide you! We usually like to see projects that are innovative, and have the potential to improve or influence people’s lives. Try to build a hack that people can use, enjoy, and potentially scale. Most importantly, have fun with it and try to finish on time. We know you can only do so much in 24 hours, so it’s ok if your project is not perfect (yet).
Are there travel stipends?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide travel stipends for our global series.
Who can attend?
Anyone and everyone! Our attendees typically consist of junior developers looking to improve their skills, senior developers looking to expand their horizons, designers of all skill-sets, and serious entrepreneurs that can add value to teams. Bring your idea and let’s go!
If hackathon has sold out, we’ll allow in those with tickets first, and waitlisters IF there is still room.
How is the hackathon judged?
Let’s be honest, y’all can do better than Powerpoints. Which is why we rock with live DEMOS only! No exceptions. To win an AngelHack hackathon, you will have to demo your product for at least 30 seconds, but don’t worry if your project is still not 100% perfected. Projects will be judged based on the following criteria:
Last thing. In this day and age of #selfies and #squad photos, it’s likely that photos and/or video will be taken at the event. By entering the venue, you’re giving us the OK to snap photos and post to social media.
We’re excited to see you there!
