What are Online Hackathons?

An online or virtual hackathon is a 4 to 6 week competition where teams made up of complementary profiles compete to create winning Proofs of Concept answering to specific challenges. The benefit of an online hackathon is that you can involve participants from multiple locations and maximize the number of projects created and increase brand exposure.

"I had reached out to Hackathon.com to organise Vodafone’s first Global Hackathon and they delivered successfully across the board.... I look forward to more Hackathons with them."
Amit Akhelikar, Group Commercial, Head of Mobile Apps
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.”
