The Global Hackathon Series was initially started by a small community of technologists with one goal in mind: to develop opportunity wherever possible.
What started as a way for creators to connect and move their ideas forward turned into a global revolution. Soon, innovators from around the world were joining forces to elevate themselves and their platform – all of which was done through Hackathons.
And while we’ve seen lots of changes since the early Hackathon days, one thing has remained the same – innovators are continuing to rise. Innovators rise to meet opportunity, they rise from failure, they rise from all corners of the globe, and they lend a hand to help others rise with them. It’s why the Global Hackathon Series is still going strong to this day, because Hackathons and the opportunities they create allow people to rise, together.
So, if this is your 12th Global Hackathon Series or your first, we hope you discover many excellent opportunities along the way. If at any point you have a question about hackathons, how to prepare, prototyping strategies, what to pack for success, or anything else, please reach out to the community and let us know. We can’t wait to see your ideas rise this summer!
Days Until the Series Kickoff!
Where the Global Series is Headed
This year, the series goals around opportunity are rising even further through the Global Virtual Hackathon. Alongside our worldwide in-person hackathon events, the community will also launch an online program that allows anyone in the world to meet and compete – regardless of barriers or borders. This event will take place throughout June of 2019 and will include sponsor challenges and prizes, accelerator opportunities, workshops and educational webinars. Official registration opens in May of 2019, but you can pre-register and join the community to begin brainstorming today.
In addition to the Global Virtual Hackathon, we’re going to be hosting in-person Hackathons across six continents in an effort to connect communities and cultivate impact on a global scale. Stay tuned as we announce dates and challenges closer to the Global Series kickoff.
