Here Comes Middle East’s First AngelHack!

The Spring 2014 AngelHack aims to be the largest hackathon series in the world, with more than 6,000 developers participating across 30 countries, including the UAE.

On May 23-24, AngelHack comes to Dubai, where developers, designers and entrepreneurs are invited to participate alone or as a team for a chance to win cash prizes, seed capital, acceptance into a Silicon Valley accelerator, and a trip to Silicon Valley to pitch their idea in front of well-known investment firms.

 10007054_429085857194179_301049429_nAngelHack organizes innovation events and hackathons around the world. Their flagship event is the global AngelHack competition, where developers come together for a chance to enter the HACKcelerator program and showcase their work in Silicon Valley.

The two-day hackathon offers participants a chance to code and demo their idea to a panel of judges, who will pick the regional winner based on originality, technological difficulty, viability and usefulness. The event encourages new ideas, ideas that are useful, ideas that solve big problems, ideas that could potentially make money and ideas that get people excited.

In addition, leading regional developers will be on hand during the event to deliver workshops, as well as local mentors providing advice and encouragement to participants.

AngelHack Dubai will be held at The Cribb, a networking and event space for entrepreneurs. The regional sponsor is i360accelerator, a seed fund and development program for early stage startups.

Attendees are invited to code through the night before the judging begins on Sunday afternoon. Food and beverages are included in the cost of admission.
