Hackathon Overview


Hack PSU will be held Saturday Nov 10th through Sunday Nov 11th 2012 in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week. This event is organized by Innoblue and sponsored by the Smeal College of Business, Microsoft, GE, Ready Force and Team TreeHouse.

It is a 24 hour hackathon at Penn State that gives students the chance to collaborate on building something awesome. (This event is free) Whether you have a background in programming, designing or marketing, this is the perfect opportunity to form a team around an idea, build a prototype, and present it to judges at the end of the 24 hours. There are no constraints on what you can build; it can be anything from a website to hardware technology. There will be over $2000 worth of prizes. Judges for the event include Steve Welch, founder of DreamIt Ventures, and Liz Kisenwether, co-director of the Lion Launch Pad. This event is open to students of all colleges.
