AppHACK is coming to Austin in an effort help developers educate and collaborate in a 24 hour mobile app competition with the goal of building stronger developer ecosystems, and thus stronger startup communities. Each event will have 1 winner, which will win acceptance into our HACKcelerator pre-accelerator program and have the opportunity to come to San Francisco for our 2 week SF experience.
AppHACK will be judged predominantly by CTO’s and you will have to actually demo what you built. PowerPoints and slide shows will not be allowed. Judging will be based on how creative, simple, and impactful your hack might be.
AngelHack Fall 2013 brings together 6000+ developers across 30 cities for the world’s largest hackathon. The top teams worldwide will be entered in HACKccelerator and receive 6-8 weeks of expert mentorship before being flown to Silicon Valley to showcase their work to investors and media at AngelHack’s Global Demo Day on January 24th, 2014. On average, 30% of finalists will find funding and move on to become groundbreaking startups.
