Why sponsor Hack Keele?

Students establish industry connections which not only create employment opportunities for the students, but it also puts a school on the radar of important donors and corporate partners.

More importantly, countless students get to spend our workshops and hackathon weekend having fun, meeting new people, and preparing themselves for technical careers. Hackathons provide a real-world experience for students, as they compete in teams to create a product. Similar to the product cycles of a startup company, hackathon teams quickly transition from the idea stage to the final product.

Students have a chance to gain time management skills, along with technical expertise and new connections. In addition, students get to spend one-on-one time with expert mentors who spend the hackathon teaching students new technical skills and helping students with their projects.
