How we’ll organize and customize your hackathon

Original, collaborative, and fun, hackathons are competitions of innovation and inventiveness. Hackathon events bring together passionate tech enthusiasts and challenge them to develop new solutions and build prototypes of their ideas.

We start your hackathon journey with an online or in-person kickoff meeting. During this session, we gather stakeholders to define and agree on key aspects of the event. This includes choosing a format, deciding on the profile of participants, and other aspects of the hackathon. You'll come away with a clear plan for success.

Organize Hackathon NBC Universal

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.
