Hack UNLV: Grand Prix
November 2023 isn't just about the time for finals at UNLV - it's also when the Formula 1® Grand Prix will be coming to Las Vegas on November 16 - 18th!
We are partnering with companies who want to get-in on the excitement of sponsoring a student-led, 42-hour event to connect with the tech community, make fun memories and celebrate this awesome occasion! We have several brilliant student and staff organizers who need your support to make this event happen, and you can become a part of the hype of this "F1-Themed" Hackathon!
Though we would've loved to have had the idea ourselves, this is an initiative that has been going hard and strong internationally for over 6 years by the team at Major League Hacking. Their organization has supported 65,000 students around the world to host their own tech-focused events to inspire innovation, cultivate communities and teach computer science skills. MLH is an engaged and passionate maker community, consisting of the next generation of technology leaders and entrepreneurs.
A "hackathon" is an official student-led event that gathers hundreds (sometimes thousands) of "hackers" across the university-space to participate in a weekend event that: challenges them to make prototypes of technological innovations; connects them with other "hackers" amongst their schools; prepares them for job-recruiting opportunities; and overall celebrate making cool tech with awesome people!
Our team consists of 7 aspiring UNLV students and faculty members that are organizing the entire UNLV-student base (and more schools) to take part in our 42-hour contest that will feature multiple opportunities for companies and sponsors to engage, share & learn from others.
We want to challenge students to consider multiple aspects of racing and engineering; thus, we have a rough idea of some competitions for the following:
The ideas are limitless! We hope to have more ideas from our sponsors who may be seeking their own solutions or want to share fun ideas! In terms of prizes....well, we'll keep that to ourselves for now ;)
To make this event possible, we are seeking a minimum of $40,000.
All the sweat and grease will be worth it to see students engage with the tech community and connect with one another as UNLV's 1st Hackathon Event.
However, if we really want to make this a VEGAS party, we'll definitely welcome more sponsorship opportunities!
The following is a representation of the opportunities you can become a part of. Whether you join as a "Pit Crew Member" Sponsor, sponsor an individual branded perk, or donate $1 - we appreciate your support!
We will provide regular updates to our sponsors, partners and students on confirmation of venue layout; FAQs as they come-in; kudos as more partners join & speaker/workshop lineups.
Please keep in-mind that our student and faculty team are busy with getting their degrees and teaching, so any inquiries and questions regarding the event may have a delay in response. If you wish to coordinate with the GroupGets team, contact us by: email@example.com
