About this event

If you like to build and create, this event is for you. Picture a vibrant space where entrepreneurs, students, and professionals converge to build whatever they want—from innovative new projects to wacky ideas. The best projects, as determined by our panel of expert and investor judges, will have opportunities to win prizes and bragging rights. From the initial brainstorming to the final pitch, you'll experience a weekend-long version of the entrepreneurial journey. Check out some [projects](https://devpost.com/software) from [past hackathons](https://devpost.com/hackathons) for inspiration.

Unlike a traditional "[hackathon](https://guide.mlh.io/overview/why-organize-a-hackathon),” we have a broad sense of the word "build" — whether you're technical or non-technical, we want you to build together! This event is also an ideal platform to find talent or collaborators to bring your idea to life. The event will occur over three days at the 757 Startup Studios within the Assembly campus in Norfolk, VA.
