We have an all-in-one virtual platform that automates the entire process of conducting a hackathon for your team. From registration to problem statement allotment and submission of the solution, your team can do everything from a single source.

Accessible from Anywhere

Our platform offers your team easy management and access to hackathons from anywhere. Participants have the autonomy to select when and how they will work on the given projects.

Global Leadership Board

To encourage healthy competition, we maintain a global leaderboard where we rank participants based on the scores they secured after their project evaluation.

How it works?

Customized Problem Statement

Depending on the specific project requirement of the client, we can customize the problem statement for the hackathon. We create problem statements on requested topics which can be AWS, Azure, or as chosen by the client.

Hackathon Registrations and Access

Participants must register for the hackathon event using the link we send them. Once they create an account and log in to the portal, they get the access key to participate in the event.

Participants Build the Solution

As decided by the client, participants compete in the hackathon individually or in a group. Once they log in, they start building the solution within the set time.

Perform within Time

The problem statement will be active for 24 hours, during which participants will have to work on the problem statement and design a solution. However, during the given time, they can log in and work on the solution at any time, and the client decides the number of attempts per login.

Global Leaderboard

Participants compete with the leaderboard, a board that shows the names and positions of the leading scorer in the event. Live ranking is displayed on the leaderboard to promote healthy competition and motivate participants to perform better.

Automatic Evaluation

Once participants submit the solution, it is evaluated and assessed. Based on the evaluation, they are scored, and the reports are shared with the stakeholders. The evaluation process is automated.

Correct solutions will be displayed once the solution is submitted
