Hillsborough County is seeking sponsorships from local businesses, who are interested in becoming champions for innovation, for the first Hillsborough Hack-A-Thon. This 48-hour long event will be held April 12-14, at the Hillsborough Community College – Brandon Campus, 10414 E. Columbus Drive in Tampa. Sponsorship will help cover the cost for advertisement, event space, prizes, food for the participants, and other event-related expenses.
There are several sponsorship levels that range from $250-$1,000. Sponsor benefits vary depending on the level, and include company logo on the Hillsborough Hack-A-Thon website, a 15 minute presentation-time during the event, logo on t-shirts, banner placement, and recognition as champions for innovation from Hillsborough County.
Powered by County-provided live data, Hillsborough Hack-A-Thon participants will flex their creative spirit and build applications that can benefit the community. The Hillsborough Hack-A-Thon is open to all college students and community designers and developers. The ultimate goal is to demonstrate the potential impact of open data and technological development on the economic prosperity of our community.
