What if I don’t know how to code? According to Forbes Magazine, startups need three members – the hackers, the hustlers and the hipsters. Whether you are a technical genius, a creative prodigy, or a practical business-type, there is a need for you.
CEO is Georgia State University’s student-run entrepreneurship organization. Our mission is to spread the entrepreneurial spirit throughout Georgia State and the city of Atlanta. Aside from starting help students businesses, we like to have fun and make things. With that in mind, it only makes sense that we bring a hackathon to Georgia State.
Students will join a team that comes up with an idea for a tech-enabled company that helps solve a problem on college campuses. The top teams will move onto It all culminates with a pitch competition and an after party to decompress. How cool is that?!?!
This is your chance to have fun, meet cool people, make something cool and possibly win awesome prizes, all in 24 hours.
Participants are asked to brainstorm on ideas for companies (a product/service, who they will sell it to, how much, etc.) that solves a specific problem that comes with college life. These problems fall under one of five categories: classroom, web, campus, student entertainment, and Free for all.
Hack the Classroom: A classroom hack would improve professors’ ability to teach or students’ ability to learn material (in or out of the classroom).
Hack the Web: A web hack would improve the online experience on campus for students and (or) faculty and staff.
Hack the Campus: A campus hack would improve some form of the on-campus experience, including but not limited to: transportation/navigation, communication and safety.
Student Entertainment: A student entertainment hack would improve the student experience in a way that students find enjoyable.
