Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season
It doesn't happen without you!

What is MinneHack?

MinneHack is a regional hackathon – a software development competition. Most hackathons take place over a 24 hour period and include any number of teams that are comprised of up to four students. Previous iterations of MinneHack (including our first annual hackathon, originally branded UHack) have attracted 200+ students from 14 colleges and 5 different states – making it the largest hackathon in the Twin Cities! These students consist of motivated software engineers – many of whom are eligible for recruiting.

Why sponsor?

MinneHack is a unique opportunity to connect with the most talented and passionate technical students from around the region.

We also offer additional benefits based on sponsorship commitment.
