Entrepreneurship Hack Day exists to show entrepreneurs that they can create something valuable from scratch without knowing how to code. You don't need to be a computer programmer to participate in this hackathon! (Don't know what a hackathon is? Click me!) We will provide you with mentorship that will help you bring your ideas to life and visually communicate them through prototyping.

Entrepreneurship Hack Day is a 12-hour experience where you will build a prototype that communicates a product idea visually. You’ll learn how to use the best prototyping tools in the industry, network with like-minded people of various backgrounds, become a better product person, and win prizes! Advisers and subject-matter experts will guide your team and provide feedback during the event.

Entrepreneurship Hack Day requires NO CODING! Instead, you’ll be using prototyping tools, drag and drop editors, mockups, wireframes and anything else you can think of to visually demo your idea on stage. Competitors will work solo or in teams.
