BizHacks 2019 will be our 4th year running the hackathon, and we have facilitated and incubated great ideas at our events since 2016. The concept of a business-themed Hackathon was first conceived amongst eager UBC students, with the help from a visionary advisor. Together, they created a Hackathon like no other. Instead of creating original projects, teams are tasked with creating solutions to real-life business challenges. Last year, at BizHacks 2018, participants in over 30 teams were introduced with fifteen different Business prompts to choose from. The prompts ranged from creating an effective logging and GPS system for Translink to tailoring specific advertisement for Snapchat.
beyond the hackathon
Besides organizing an annual hackathon, BizHacks aims to promote further hi-tech creativity and solutions through workshops, company visits, and networking events. Our goal is to prepare young people to take on the ever-changing technological world we now currently live in by stimulating inventive unraveling of the future. We believe it is time to hack your way into the business and to boldly go where one has gone before!
