AngelHack: The biggest hackathon series of the planet is coming to Cyprus!

AngelHack, «the world’s most diverse hacker community» announced its annual Global Hackathon Series earlier this year and it’s also coming to Cyprus for the first time! This year’s theme is focusing on Seamless Technology.

The event will travel to more than 50 cities starting from San Francisco’s Tech-Mecca Silicon Valley to the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, North America, Europe, and mainland China in search of unique tech talent and innovation.

The event is co-hosted and sponsored by Impact Tech LTD, leaders in Big Data and AI technology-based solutions and the disruptive digital media agency RiseTech Media. The hackathon will be hosted at Cyprus University of Technology in Limassol, Cyprus on July 7-8, 2018.

During the hackathon series, developers, designers and entrepreneurs get a chance to meet like-minded people and demonstrate their skills, while tech giants such as IBM, Amazon, Microsoft and Agora are on the lookout for great talent and ideas that can invest in or even make part of their business. AngelHack has evolved to a global community of more than 150,000 people deriving from all corners of the world.

«We expect to bring out more developers than ever before and project a five percent bump in female attendance. By introducing hackathons, virtual competitions, accelerator programs, and various developer initiatives over the past six years to over 100 cities, I’ve seen some of the best rapidly-prototyped ideas the developer ecosystem has to offer. Through the HACKcelerator and other accelerator programs, I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with these entrepreneurs and watched as their startups turned into reality; proving that the projects don’t stop when the hackathon does,» said AngelHack Founder & CEO, Sabeen Ali.
