About this event

The LAUNCH Festival celebrates startups, innovation and of course the people who build amazing new products. That's why we're partnering with AngelHack to host our first-ever LAUNCH Hackathon the weekend before the 2013 Festival -- we want the best devs and designers to make cool stuff, to finally build that killer app they've been thinking about for months.

How will the LAUNCH Hackathon be different? For starters, we're offering a $50K investment or $20K cash to the winner. We'll have massages and excellent food, too. Each participant will also receive a complimentary Festival Pass.
