Join organizers from the top college hackathons!

The organizers of the 14 top university hackathon in North America battle for votes from the judging panel, and ultimately the $25,000 sponsorship from a16z.

If you missed it last year, the way we do Battle of the Hacks is different from other hackathons you might have been part of. We bring together the 14 top university hackathon organizers in North America. Each puts together a team of their four top engineers. These four-person teams compete for votes from the judging panel, and ultimately the $25,000 sponsorship we put up for a hackathon to be hosted at the winning school.
