SAN FRANCISCO, March 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, AngelHack launched their 12th Global Hackathon Series. Now
This year's Global Hackathon theme encourages AngelHack's 175,000+ community of developers, startups, and entrepreneurs, along with external code creators and change makers, to rise to the occasion with the 2019 theme of "Innovators Rising." With a focus on rising from around the world, the Global Series will begin its run in San Francisco on April 20th, 2019, and finish with a final city in July 2019. Events will take place in North America, Latin America, Middle East, Africa, Mainland China, India, and Europe with details found here: https://angelhack.com/global-hackathon-series/
"When we first launched the Global Hackathon Series, we could have never predicted how far it would go and how many people around the world it would impact. We've seen parents learn how to code alongside their children in Los Angeles, an 80% female hackathon attendance rate in Gaza, and a hackathon team in Barcelona join our HACKcelerator program then go on to receive over €2 million in funding. So it's always an extra special moment for us when we can step back from that and say 'what's next.' How do we continue growing and bringing opportunities around the world? This year that means hosting a genuinely global program through our first virtual series event." said Founder & CEO, Sabeen Ali.
Adi Abili, Director of Accelerators & CIO, added, "The talent in our community continues to rise year-after-year, and by allowing remote individuals the chance to network and submit their ideas to an established program, we expect to see more developers than ever before creating startups with innovative tech at the forefront."
Top teams from both the in-person and virtual Hackathons will be welcomed into an acclaimed global pre-accelerator, the HACKcelerator, for a 3-month long mentorship and curriculum-driven program that has seen five exits and a rising valuation over the past five years. The HACKcelerator provides resources, access, and the chance to pitch to numerous investors in Silicon Valley during AngelHack's 2019 Global Demo Day.
