Event Details


Update 12/3 9:00am  Additional tickets will be available on location for $99. Good luck everyone. 

Update 11/25: Due to capacity issues we will be moving AngelHack to Adobe's SF campus  where we can fit 200+ and hack all night long. Also we have accumulated almost $50 in shwag for all attendees. POW!

Put your startup skills to the test as you compete in a next generation hackathon for big money prizes and the attention of investors and media. Win co-work space from i/o ventures or PeopleBrowsr, entrance into accelerator programs like Yetizen and Teens in Tech, and learn nifty API integrations for prizes from Box, Docusign, Klout, Mashery, Factual, Sendgrid, and others.

Hackathon's are becoming granulized and boring. We are looking to fix that!

Think of us like a hybrid Startup Weekend meets API's and prizes. Our events include founder dating / team building services, mentorship from top designers and engineers, pitch improvement services, and really cool shwag. We also provide food, drinks, and a couple other goodies. 

AngelHack starts with 5 hours of mentorship and team building and then rolls into a 24hr day/night hackathon. Afterwards the best teams will be able to present their product to a panel of Angel Investor's / VC's / and Media for the chance to showcase what you can do. So bring your A-Game!
