Hackagong Bega

29th April, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 30th April, 2016 @ 2:30 pm

Synth Group
A hackathon competition where teams of designers, developers, tinkerers and thinkers get together to build something from start to finish in just 1 day. Creations should be technology focused but can be digital like apps and software or physical products.
Big Idea : Come up with a great hack…and team up with a hipster and/or hustler and win the SeaChange StartUp Camp too.
On completion teams pitch their ideas and completed products to a panel of notable judges. There are cash prizes (details to be announced) for the overall winner and bragging rights for the most creative, best use of theme, best physical product, best virtual product etc.

IMPORTANT : Food is provided throughout the entire event at no cost (inclusive in the admission fee).
