HackATL | Emory’s Hackathon for Hackers, Hipsters and Hustlers

by Angela King

Where hackers, hipsters, and hustlers come together to develop a viable product and pitch in a weekend.

Last year, over 750 students, mentors, and investors came together from around the world to build the next BIG THING – two teams even received an investment of $100K (how cool is that?!). Join the Emory Entrepreneurship & Venture Management (EEVM) team on November 4-6th for HackATL IV.

So what makes this Hackathon different from the rest?

EEVM focuses their Hackathon on providing the resources and requirements to help your project survive after the weekend. Each project will require a market analysis and high-level financial projections, in addition to your hack. Guess what? This is what investors look for.

Hurry and form your dream team with other student hackers, hustlers and hipsters to create and pitch a business to real investors. Apply here.

Did we mention the awesome keynote speaker Chris Klaus, who sold his company Internet Security Systems (ISS) to IBM for a cool $2B in 2006. He’s now the co-founder of CyberLaunch, an Atlanta-based accelerator that works with both cybersecurity and machine-learning startups.

Sounds good? We thought it would. Register here.
