Our vision

A call for first timers

Hackathons are awesome for so many reasons. They stimliate creativity and problem-solving, give participants a sense of accomplishment and worthiness, facilitate the acquisition of new technical skills, and beef up resumes. Unfortunately, many engineers don’t attend hackathons due to lack of self-confidence, exposure to these events, or because they may not have a team they can build with. This problem is even more common amongst groups that are under-represented in the high tech industry.
That's why we decided to create HackExtend - a hackathon for people who usually don’t hack. We want to create a different type of event; one that’s focused on creativity and community, not competition. It’s about learning, meeting new people, and building cool things together. We are working very hard to make it extremely diverse, and will prioritize diverse groups in acceptance.


Our mentors are group of engineers, product managers and designers from wide backgrounds. They will be available before and during the event for questions.
