Ready to take your big idea to the next level? Then join us for Toronto's first AngelHack! Winning teams receive 6-8 weeks of expert mentorship and are flown to Silicon Valley to showcase their projects to high-profile tech investors and media. The event-filled weekend also includes site visits to top tech startups and VCs, VIP dinners, and ridiculously fun parties.

This is not your typical hackathon; this is the big leagues.
AngelHack Fall 2012 Fast Facts
  • 2500 amazing developers & designers in 11 cities worldwide for you to work with
  • Great food, swag, nerf guns, helicopters, and awesomness all around
  • Over $650,000 in prizes, including trips to Silicon Valley for the top 25 teams

What should I build?
Create a prototype (hack) of something that you believe solves a big problem. You don't need a business plan or anything silly like that, but you should be able to show the "big idea" potential of your hack. AngelHack is a launchpad for you to flush out and validate projects you've always wanted to build. Previous winners include: Appetas, GiveGo, TapFame, SnapStore, ShareBrowse, Kloutron, & Blue Dragon Security.

What are the rules?
Max team size is 5 people.

All code must be FRESH. Prior to the hackathon you can create your design, wireframes, logo, and user flows. You can even build hardware. But to make things completely fair, you cannot write any code whatsoever until the hackathon starts. All code must be put together at AngelHack. You're on your honour.


Slideshow 'how it'll magically work' presentations = autofail. Demos actually have to be demos.

For more info visit our Rules and FAQ pages.

Good luck,
Gregory Gopman
AngelHack Founder / CEO
