A Format Tailored To Your Needs

Hackathon events bring together passionate tech enthusiasts and challenge them to develop new solutions and build prototypes of their ideas within a predetermined (typically short) time frame. Each event is unique and can be custom designed to meet any corporate objective(s).

Typically 4 - 6 weeks of online competition, where startups work with your internal teams to develop creative solutions to business challenges. This approach is excellent for bolstering startup programs and increasing the number of projects using specific technology.

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.
