LinkedIn Hackathon

Hosted by TechCentralSF, Co-Chair Craig Newmark with Mayor Ed Lee!


The TechCentralSF Startup Veteran weekend & hackathon is a business and application development competition. The event’s goal is to invite returning veterans to be part of a team focused on building successful startups around the next generation social, mobile, gaming, ecommerce, health or other applications and to foster a community of (veteran) entrepreneurship.

In this two-day event the tech community in San Francisco will come together to support our returning Iraq/Afghan veterans.  Teams of approximately 5-10 people will be formed with a variety of skills -the vets can have the idea, help with business plan, marketing or just sit in to audit/participate for educational purposes – vet coding skills are NOT required – however developers from the tech community are encouraged to attend!

Register ASAP as space is limited!

When: Saturday March 24th and Sunday March 25th
Where: Adobe, SF – 601 Townsend Street
