Student Hackathon - All streams

Dear all,

Please find below the call for participation of the Hackathon event end of this month. In case you are interested in taking part get in touch with Fredrick.Mtenzi@dit.ie asap.

1. The top two winning students teams from the hackathon on the 26th & 27th March will be invited to pitch to the top two global cyber security VC firms and our enterprise judges live on stage at the Science Gallery on the 5th April, its a great opportunity for students. Hackathon Details.

*FYI: we've placed the lowest possible price on student tickets for university partners, the 20euro just about covers catering for the two day hackathon.*

2. We've confirmed the top two cyber security investment firms in the world, leaders from Paladin Capital Group and JVP in Israel will be speaking at the summit on the 5th April. Summit Details.

3. As a university partner, It would be great to gain your support on the hackathon, if you could please share the hackathon details through university student channels we can get numbers on board as soon as possible, confirm venue and host a hackathon that enables real connections and support for technical students.

LAST YEARS STUDENTS
When we held the summit in London last year, two student graduates created a rough prototype in two days. Through summit connections, mentor advice and introductions the two students formed a company, received angel funding, got into an accelerator program and last month raised a seed funding round of 500K. This year we have those students back and Alesis, cofounder of Aimbrain will be a speaker at the summit, a big change in 12 months :)

Along with providing the environment to connect and experiment within our hackathon, we also want to inspire students on story's like the AimBrain journey. To do this we would really appreciate your support.
