Developers, Makers and Built Industry Experts: Come hack with us and win cash prizes

The BuiltWorlds Hackathon is a weekend-long competition where all-star developers, makers, and built industry experts gather to hack solutions to burning built world problems.

What’s a built world problem?

Anything affecting the world we live in — namely, our cities, buildings, and infrastructure.

How it works

FORM Teams of 3-6 hackers form and choose a problem to solve.
HACK Each team has roughly 36 hours to churn out a prototype solution.
PITCH Each team presents their ideas to a panel of judges.
WIN First place winners will receive a cash prize!


We have two challenges for you to enter:

Software Challenge

the best application of software

In traditional Hackathon-style, teams in the software track will compete to create the best software solution to a built industry problem (that is, any problem in our cities, infrastructure or buildings). If you’re a developer or want to participate on a dev team for the weekend, this track is for you.

Maker Challenge

the best application of hardware or robotics 

This challenge is meant for developers who are interested in Internet of Things technology and creating solutions that integrate hardware with software.

A weekend of boundless R&D for your company

The BuiltWorlds Hackathon is not only for hackers. BuiltWorlds Members can also get involved and create a winning opportunity for their company.

Join the Hackathon, work alongside our hackers, and discover innovative solutions to your business-critical challenges. Take control of one of the challenges for a weekend of unlimited R&D.  Recruit your next rock star talent from amidst our competitors. Test drive your newest software and products for some of the industry’s most innovative minds.
