LAUNCH hosted its first ever Hackathon during the LAUNCH Festival 2013. With 500+ vetted builders (developers/designers) participating and over $100,000 in prizes awarded, it was an overwhelming success!
And we’re doing it again! We’re looking for the best devs and designers to make cool stuff, to finally build that killer app they've been thinking about for months.
How will the LAUNCH Hackathon be different? For starters, there is a $100,000 investment or $10,000 cash prize to the winner! We'll have massages and excellent food, too. Each participant will also receive a complimentary pass to the 2014 LAUNCH Festival and the winner will be guaranteed a spot on the LAUNCH Festival 2014 stage.
Teams of 1-4 can apply to attend the event. We're only accepting BUILDERS (developers, designers, etc). All applicants will be reviewed. Individuals can register as their own team and can always add/remove members through this website.
November 8 (Fri) 6:00 PM - November 10 (Sun) 9:00 PM
