A Hackathon is a collection of diverse Hackers (Hardware, Software + Engineering folks) , Hustlers(Marketing, Business types) and Hipsters (Creative, design driven) to create new concepts together in diverse teams by leveraging technology and product design skills, mashed with the creative juices of teams that form around compelling ideas. As part of Hunter Innovation Festival 2017, we're running a local Hackathon to explore and prototype new possibilities for the Hunter region, in a Friday night/ Saturday event covering SmartEnergy, AgTech and InclusiveCommunity challenges.

Hackathons are a proven innovation + disruption model that can accelerate the delivery of new technical solutions to stubborn problems, whilst also creating new economic value, innovations and fundable businesses in a short experimentation + teaming cycle.
