The MobileWeek Hackathon is a 30-hour app-building contest in downtown New York City - and is also the official kick-off of MobileWeek 2014!

The purpose of the hackathon is to give developers, designers, and entrepreneurs the chance to pitch app ideas - form teams - build a prototype of their mobile app - and present to our hackathon judges for a chance to be one of the top 3 hackathon winners who get publicity and connections during MobileWeek.
