Students From Across the Country Are Invited to Emory’s HackATL

by Angela King

HackATL is back, bigger and better than ever!

Emory’s Entrepreneurship & Venture Management Group (EEVM) is gearing up to host its fifth annual HackATL, October 26-28, which encourages hackers, hustlers and hipsters to create ideas that cater to the world’s most pressing issues. Whether it be improving a lethal disease using virtual reality, extracting energy from unexpected ingredients or building an app for world peace, HackATL is an opportunity to explore next-generation entrepreneurship amidst the brightest minds in the Southeast.

In the past, HackATL has seen over 400 students from all over the country come together, and this year’s event is set to attract even more students from across the world. Throughout the weekend, participants will engage with hundreds of students who are all are passionate about learning and making a difference.

No business, design, or coding experience is required for you to participate in HackATL. Participants must be current undergraduate or graduate students, or recent alumni that graduated no more than six months before HackATL.

Event categories

Day 1: The event will start with an opening ceremony with an inspiring keynote speaker. Attendees will get a chance to meet sponsors, talk to past HackATL teams, find potential team members, and discover what issue you would like to work on.

Day 2: Join any one of a number of workshops in design, coding, business planning and pitching to learn exactly how to build a product and business from an idea.

Day 3: This is when participants will present their ideas and product to judges, first in the preliminary round, then in a final round. Participants will get to see what other teams’ projects look like before final deliberations.

This could be a start to your career in startups — whether it’s working for one or founding your own!
