The Peninsula's first hackathon

Can you design a product or service to help solve unemployment in less than 48 hours?


YES I CAN!

How does PenHACK work?

Hackathons bring together a community dedicated to using creative problem solving to tackle ambitious social or commercial problems.

This year's theme is all about solving local unemployment through trends in the Future of Work.

Guided by mentors and assessed by expert judges, teams of up to four participants have less than 48 hours to design, prototype, test and pitch their proposed product or service idea to win a share of up to $10,000 in cash and prizes.

  1. 1

    Get Ready

    Register as individual or up to a team of four. Registration & tickets via Eventbrite

    Going solo or looking for more to add to your team? We'll help you connect with other participants once registered.

  2. 2

    Set

    Come to our kick-off night!
    Grab some swag, meet the mentors and judges, and get some expert tips to hit the ground running.

  3. 3

    Whether you want to race to the finish line or go at your own pace, you'll have 8pm Friday and 3pm Sunday to work on your projects (and sneak in some fun activities here and there!)
