Do you have an idea for a tech startup but don't know how to code?

Join us for Entrepreneurship Hack Day and bring your startup to life through a presentation, prototype, and pitch.

Entrepreneurship Hack Day exists to show entrepreneurs that they can be a part of tech innovation without knowing how to code. Our goal is to empower the non-technical community with the tools, resources, and mentorship to be an active part of innovation and entrepreneurship. 

Over the course of 12 hours, you'll:

1) Form a team | network and collaborate with like-minded people who will help you bring the idea to life 

2) Ideate and brainstorm | think up every crazy idea possible, collaborate, and narrow it down

3) Prepare a business plan | identify the problem you're solving, who your customer is, and how to monetize 

4) Design a prototype | visually communicate your solution through a working prototype using some of the best tools in the industry

5) Get mentorship | meet with industry experts to help you with your pitch, business model, and design

6) Prepare a presentation | you'll have up to 10 slides and 90 seconds to showcase the work you've done in the past 12 hours

7) Pitch to a panel of judges | notable founders who can help validate your idea 

*Successful teams will take home over $10,000 worth of prizes. All participants will leave with over $300 worth of free startup tools.
