Hackathons are programming marathons where students build services, gadgets, and apps to win prizes, and ultimately, recognition. Hackathons are a paradigm shift in technology education, and they have taken the world by storm. They encourage learning and innovation through collaboration and have produced some of the most capable thinkers and innovators of the next generation. ACM and TUDev will be throwing a 12hr hackathon titled "OwlHacks" on March 23rd. Our hackathon will attract some of the top undergraduate developers, engineers, and designers in the Philadelphia area. This makes OwlHacks a great recruiting and marketing opportunity. We’re inviting companies to present their products and services for students to explore and leverage in their applications, and we would like you to be one of them.
We want you to be a part of the OwlHacks family, and we think that sponsoring OwlHacks has some clear advantages:
You have the opportunity to recruit, network with, and market your brand to some of the best student engineers on the east coast.
Although students have complete autonomy over what they choose to develop, companies may influence them through OwlHacks facilitated marketing:
API Demos & Prizes
You have a unique ability to serve the community in a very efficient and public way by helping student engineers and designers learn how to build and utilize technology.
Your company get a vantage-point on the bleeding edge of the technological landscape; it’s a great opportunity to hear tomorrow’s startup ideas today
OwlHacks is going to be a huge undertaking, and we need all the support that we can get. There are many ways to support our cause, the most effective of which are listed below:
Donate financially to OwlHacks. This allows us the flexibility to spend money where we need it the most.
