"I had reached out to Hackathon.com to organize Vodafone’s first Global Hackathon and they delivered successfully across the board.... I look forward to organize more Hackathons with them."
“When we start planning for a hackathon at NBCUniversal, Hackathon.com is the only partner we think of. Hackathon.com has been a trusted partner of ours since 2015 and together we’ve successfully executed about a dozen hackathons – both with internal and external participants. What impressed me the most is their deep expertise in the space as well as their connections within the various developer communities. The team we work is attentive, extremely competent, organized, proactive and most importantly able to adapt to the ever-changing needs before and during a hackathon. For any company out there who is looking to organize and execute a hackathon, must talk to Hackathon.com as a part of their due diligence.”
"A highly responsive, friendly and energetic team, eager to ensure that your event is a success. I love working with this team and thank them for a record breaking event this year!"

"We worked with Hackathon.com to launch the new Bixby, by hosting a Developer Showcase. The Developer Showcase unveiled new ways for developers to bring a more conversational, personal and useful intelligent assistant experiences to life. It was awesome working with the Hackathon.com team and I plan to partner with them for future projects to attract developers to the Samsung developer ecosystem."
