The Hackathon takes place December 5 and 6 at the awesome Copper Box Arena in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. The Hackathon is a place where some pretty awesome companies are born in just over 24 hours, and if you like to create things, you’re definitely going to want to be there.
The Hackathon kicks off on Saturday, December 5 at 12:30 p.m. PT with networking and the forming of the Hackathon teams. On Sunday, December 6, after a grueling 20-plus hours of hacking and coding, teams will have just 60 seconds to present their projects to a panel of judges on the Disrupt stage.
Those teams will win the opportunity to score tickets to Disrupt London on December 7 and 8, as well as the $5,000 (approximately £3,200) main prize and several gadgets, toys and other monetary prizes from our sponsors.
All teams who earn a score of 3 or higher will win two tickets to the conference, where they’ll get to attend all the fireside chats, browse the awesome startups in Hardware and Startup Alley, and hobnob at all of the parties and after-parties.
The Hackathon is a place for both hardware and software startups — the hardware company Shower With Friends won the event at Disrupt SF in 2014, and software company Infected Flight won the London Hackathon in 2014. So bring whatever great idea you have and spend the weekend bringing it that much closer to reality.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with. But you’ll need to get your tickets first, so head over to our ticketing page to sign up for your spot at the Hackathon.
