HackSummit is a hackathon that is 100% focused on creating change based on real-world problem statements. The focus of the HackSummit in San Francisco, June 14-15, 2014 is solving SF Bay local problems. That means we will focus the problem sponsors on non-profit and for-profit initiatives that affect the SF Bay area!
How to participate:
Designers + Developers: We are inviting the first 200 designers and developers to attend for free - just register on this page!
Non-Profit and For-Profit Problem Sponsors: Become a problem sponsor here so teams can build solutions to your problems and you can invite your organization members to attend!
Technology Sponsors: Get teams to build on your technology / API by becoming a technology sponsor and offering prizes!
Everyone Else: Because of limited venue capacity, we are limited to 100 attendees who are entrepreneurs / data scientists / investors / executives / non-profits / academics / community leaders. We ask that you complete this form, and you will be informed by April 15th regarding our decision. Designers / developers who do not make the first 200 registrations can also apply.

HackSummit is based on a principle of Cross-Disciplinary Open Innovation. By connecting Problem Sponsors (Organizations) and Technology Sponsors (API’s and backend tools) and Participants (developers, designers, entrepreneurs, students, business execs, industry experts) we aim to create change in both the public and private sector.
HackSummit has no centralized disciplinary focus except for convergent innovation itself. That means we do not prioritize non-profit or for-profit innovation, we do not prioritize broad humanitarian goals above or below institutional technological goals, we do not prioritize pure science or applied science goals. Each HackSummit may have a broad-based city or industry theme, but we encourage each theme to be interpreted as broadly as possible!
