San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
AngelHack is announcing its inaugural hackathon event, which brings together Silicon Valley’s top developers for the chance to win prizes from the Bay Area’s investment community. Prizes include seed capital investments, entrance to start-up accelerators, co-work space, and other tech goodies.
The 24-hour hackathon event starts at 5pm Dec 3rd and concludes with 2hr’s of presentations to an investor judging panel at 6pm Dec 4th. At the event, participants receive assistance from startup experts who help them through networking, mentorship and team-building services.
“Angelhack is about 4 things: Collaboration, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Investing,” says AngelHack founder Gregory Gopman. “We call it AngelHack because this is the first event to integrate investment products, APIs, and team building services in a hackathon.
