At TechTogether, we believe in the power of hackathons as an agent of exploration and change. The impact of hackathons should not be understated. Hackathons provide individuals exposure and access to unique opportunities. From introductions to new technologies to creating lasting friendships, these experiences are trajectory changing for many.
For this reason, we founded TechTogether with the mission of ending the hacker gender gap in technology. In 2018, only 20% of hackathon participants identified as women. Our aim is to increase this percentage by equipping individuals with the resources, funding, and mentorship to host TechTogether hackathons around the globe.
