The gateway to everything entrepreneurial at Cornell University

Hackathons and more

Hack + Marathon = HACKATHON!

Our hackathons are meant to utilize the skill set of Cornell students in a weekend of experiential learning.  These interdisciplinary hackathons bring together students from across degrees, majors, and schools at Cornell to form diverse teams and create solutions, products, or services around a topic or theme.  A hackathon celebrates hacking in its most positive context – using minimal resources and maximum brain power to create outside-the-box solutions (“hacks”).  All our hackathons are made possible by the financial support of sponsors. To learn more visit our hackathon event sites or reach out to Ami Stuart at ams345 at cornell dot edu.
