How it Works Tracks Schedule Prizes Sponsors Mentors Register Contact
Register for Accelerate SF 2014 hackathon. Designers and Developers who participate get a free pass to
DeveloperWeek 2015 Conference + Festival


Accelerate SF 2014 changes the rules about how a hackathon
works. Instead of just building any startup idea from scratch - we
invite attendees to get involved in one of five ways:

Build a new startup

Participants can build any startup app idea (from scratch) over 30 hours. You can network with our mentors to get tech help and feedback - and proceed through 2 rounds of judging!

Solve Crowd Challenges

Help solve real-world problems and browse through dozens of crowd-powered or sponsored challenges on Accelerate.im! Many of these challenges have prizes specific to Accelerate Sf 2014

Build Product Add-ons

Many of our sponsors will be offering prizes specific to tech companies who build a new product feature or add-on to their existing technology during the 30-hour hackathon!

Donate 30 hours

Accelerate SF will have a list of non-profits who need design and development help. We are asking participants to donate 30 hours to help one of these non-profits solve technology challenges!

Company Prototyping

We invite companies to host mini-hackathons inside of Accelerate SF where your company team can internally hack and build prototypes over 30 hours using our facilities and lounge area! You can make the apps private or public
