Building our decentralized future

We're scaling ETHGlobal even further, read about it here
Hackathons teach new skills, strengthen developer communities, and push the limits of new technologies. At ETHGlobal we're leveraging our team's experience running ETHWaterloo and Hack the North to foster a world-class ecosystem of Ethereum developers and entrepreneurs, collectively building the Web 3 world.
To make this happen, we offer assistance and expertise to regional hackathons across the globe, and host one major hackathon ourselves every year. Our assistance includes a toolset of APIs for event registration and management, a playbook for running an Ethereum hackathon, and our assistance securing leading speakers, judges, and sponsors in the blockchain space.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ETHGlobal?

ETHGlobal is a community effort led by the team at L4 and SV Angel. Some of the key members are Liam Horne, Kartik Talwar, Ethan Wilding, Panashe Mahachi, Jeff Coleman, and Josh Stark. ETHGlobal builds on the hard work done by Techyon, the organization that built Hack the North, Canada's Biggest Hackathon. Each year we support several hackathons in various cities.

How do I apply to be supported by ETHGlobal?

Anyone from anywhere in the world can apply to be an ETHGlobal event. Applications are reviewed and decided upon on a case-by-case basis after a call or two with the organizers of the satellite event. If you’re interested in running a hackathon supported by ETHGlobal, reach out to us at [email protected]

I’m just one person and have never run a hackathon. Will you help me start one?

We are interested in supporting early and growing ethereum communities who might not have experience running hackathons. However, a successful event requires significant on-the-ground effort and a large team of local volunteers. We will do our best to support as many events as possible while still guaranteeing high quality events to give hackers the best experience possible.

I want to host a hackathon outside of North America. Am I eligible for support?

Absolutely! We want to support hackathons all over the world, helping to build strong ethereum communities in cities where they may not exist today.
