LA Hacks

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 5:00pm to Sunday, March 31, 2019 - 5:00pm
Pauley Pavilion

In March of 2018, LA Hacks held its 6th ever hackathon in UCLA’s iconic Pauley Pavilion. For 36 hours, 1000+ hand-picked students from elite universities across the country came together to challenge themselves and push the boundaries of creativity and innovation. The end result saw a record 166 project submissions combining to win over $40,000 worth of prizes. Featuring partnerships with dozens of companies, keynotes from accomplished speakers, technical workshops, and industry panels, LA Hacks 2018 solidified its status as one of the biggest tech events in Southern California and the most rewarding hackathon in the nation.

In 2019, we aim to build upon the foundation of previous hackathons and create an event to inspire attendees and showcase current cutting-edge technology. LA Hacks 2019 will embody the theme “Learn, Create, Innovate: Expand Your Horizons” as we invite students from all over to discover and advance their potential. In this event that coincides with UCLA’s much-anticipated centennial celebration, we would like your company to help us create an event to be remembered.
