SmallBizDev Hackathons


We’ve got $20,000 for the winners of each hackathon. In each city, we will award:

Grand Prize: $10,000
Runner Up Prizes (2): $5,000.

The grand-prize winner of each hackathon will also get a chance to demo their app in front of a panel of technology and financial services experts at the SmallBizDev culminating event in Clarendon, Virginia in October. Travel and hotel accommodations included!

Plus, ALL attendees will receive 6 months of FREE access to General Assembly’s Front Row. And, thanks to a grant by Capital One, participants in San Francisco and Chicago will also receive a $50 promo code to lend to small businesses through Kiva. 

In addition, all Hackathon registration fees (minus processing fees) will go towards the Hackers’ Choice Award prize pot. The Hackers’ Choice Award will be selected by hackathon participants and attendees following the demos.

Want to win? Just pick your city and register today.
