It’s kind of a big deal.

Robert Herjavec? Jessica Alba? Amazing keynote speakers. The conference is full of goodies. Oh and the official hackathon? Yup, we’re organizing. And you know it’s gonna be a doozy.

The hackathon is the official pre-conference event, and we’ve set up some awesome challenges that are gonna be a hacking good time.

Track 1: Existing Apps: If you have an existing SaaS small business app, build an innovative integration with the QuickBooks platform to make your app even more powerful and useful than before.

Track 2: New Apps: Create a solution to a real problem faced by small businesses while leveraging the QuickBooks platform. This brand new app will integrate with QuickBooks Online and address a real world customer pain point.

Track 3: Solutions for Non-Profits: For existing or new apps, create a solution to a real problem faced by non-profits by leveraging the QuickBooks platform. Add QuickBooks platform functionality to your existing SaaS app, or build a brand new app that leverages the QuickBooks platform. Either way, your solution addresses a real pain point for non-profits.

And if you rock your chosen challenge and take home the gold? Well, let’s say that gold equals big bucks.


Win the Grand Prize? $10k split amongst your team. Plus! If your Grand Prize winning app is published on by May 2nd, the team will get $30k in marketing spend!
