We've teamed up with a handful of local women entrepreneurs, investors, and community leaders to support women entrepreneurs in Minnesota. And because of this collaboration, we'll be bringing you the 2017 Hack the Gap hackathon earlier in the year -- January 14-15, 2017!
Want to know what really comes out of a hackathon? We’ve been following 100 hackathon alumni since the 2015 and 2016 Hack the Gap hackathons. Some of attendees left inspired to change jobs, come closer together as part of the tech community, and a handful have ventured off to start their own companies.
Angeliki Beyko was on the winning team for Hack the Gap 2015. Hear about her experience and how an all-women hackathon shaped how she thinks about hackathons.
For the last couple of years, we have been programming tech events for women in Minneapolis. It’s lot of work. But the reward is truly the joy of watching it all come together. The inspiration we feel from the community and the connections attendees make at the event makes it worth all the labor. It's kind of unreal how inspired we feel being in a part of this community and what an honor to be a catalyst of it all.
