What's a hackathon?

A hackathon is a 24 hour coding competition, where people work together in teams of 2-4 to bring an exciting idea to life.

Each autumn we organise a 200-person hackathon, attended by students from Sheffield and across the country.

How can I benefit from sponsorship?

Recruit for internships or graduate schemes

Speak to our attendees about their career plans, and show them how your company can help.

At hackSheffield 5, Egress (a UK-based security software company) spoke to attendees about their graduate jobs at their nearby Sheffield office.

Get real feedback on your products

Put your product or API in the hands of developers and watch them build.

Our attendees are looking for for exciting new technologies to incorporate into their projects. By hosting a workshop introducing your product, you can encourage attendees to use it, and then collect in-person feedback from them.

Raise awareness for your brand

Show attendees what your company has to offer, and give them something to remember you by.

Your company can give away branded freebies to our attendees to help associate your brand with fast-paced innovation. Our headline sponsors are co-branded on our promotional material, which students are seen using across the University year-round.
