What is the Hackathon?

We bring together over 200 Hackers (Developers), Hipsters (Designers), and Hustlers (Business Developers) for one action-packed weekend. Participants will pitch to a panel of industry experts for a chance to win a cash prize – helping get your product in the hands of Vancouverites.

 #HackVSW2017 will be held at the brand new BCIT Tech Hub from September 22nd to 24th. We’ll kick-off Friday night with a meet-and-greet, where you’ll form your own hackathon team. On Saturday morning, you’ll build your innovation over a 24-hour sprint.

This year’s theme is New Mobility in collaboration with our title sponsor – Evo Car Share!
