If ever there were something where understanding a community, creating an exceptional user experience, producing the right environment, and attracting the perfect attendees separated success from obscurity, hackathons are it. Anyone can get a space, order pizza, give away some prizes and call it a hackathon, but to make the right impression and get the desired results, there's a bunch of things to get right, in the right amount, in the right order, at the right time, within budget.

Awesome Hackathon is the work of Deb Benkler and Ken Alan. After delivering Awesome Hackathons for a number of well-known brands and consulting for even more, it was clear that there was an unmet need. So, leveraging: our UX chops, our deep involvement and connections in the tech world, our skills building the planet’s largest tech community of its kind, and our experience hosting more than 30 tech focused events, Awesome Hackathons came to be.
