The Lobo Hackathon is an opportunity for people to come together to intensely focus and collaborate on improving or creating an idea. Teams can build or refine an idea that sets out to address a problem, utilize a technology, or create something new!

Collaborate on a team or join us for the final pitches where teams will present their ideas to a panel of judges for the chance to win cash prizes!

The prize pool total is at least $25,000!
