There are currently several opportunities to sponsor the hackathon available, and we want to get you involved!
Sponsoring the Oakland Solar Hackathon will provide your organization with the opportunity to be part of an innovative and well-publicized technology event in a burgeoning field at the intersection of high tech and clean tech. The hackathon is a highly participatory, single track program that we expect will attract a diverse group of attendees including developers, industry influencers, VCs, innovators, entrepreneurs, corporate professionals, and media mavens. We expect over 100 participants will gather over a weekend to share knowledge, develop applications, network with their peers, and discover new business opportunities.
The Oakland Solar Hackathon relies on sponsorship to provide hackers with amazing prizes and an opportunity to continue to grow the Cleanweb sector. As a volunteer based event, 100% of sponsor and attendee fees go directly to competition prizes and event production. This is where you come in. This is an opportunity for organizations such as yours to interact with these leading Cleanweb developers. Coupled with influencer interaction, we expect the Cleanweb Hackathon to attract strong media attention.
