Organized by Emory Entrepreneurship & Venture Management (EEVM), a student-run club that aims to create a community for students who wish to pursue entrepreneurship at Emory and beyond, HackATL is the most prominent student hackathon in the Southeast, attracting 1,500+ students from top undergraduate programs across the United States and abroad. The goal of the annual event is to create innovative solutions, with student hackers, that cater to the world’s most pressing issues.
This year, HackATL celebrates its 10-year anniversary and is celebrating in style… and in person, November 4-6.
The theme for the year is “Ready Hacker X” and participants are asked to explore their wildest dreams. Hackers are given 48 hours to develop a prototype and pitch it to judges, angel investors, and venture capitalists. Whether it is incorporating the latest metaverse tech to tackle geographical inequality in business or developing a digital platform that tracks health risks in real-time, hackers will be able to develop breakthroughs that will change the world for the better.
Who can participate?
All undergraduate, graduate students and recent graduates (within 6 months) are welcome to join. HackATL is very beginner-friendly so participants do not need prior experience. But for those who may need a refresher, there will be workshops offered to teach you the skills needed to participate.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s get you registered!
