Explore New Ways of Working Together

Collaboration and content-sharing tools are only just being discovered. With so many new frontiers to be explored, the possibilities for what could be are endless.

The Valley's smartest engineers, designers and entrepreneurs will be at the Box Hackathon. Join them (and an impressive group of guest speakers) for pizza, amazing prizes, a few laughs and some inspirational experiences.

Change the World at the 2012 Box Hackathon

Will your groundbreaking business application be:

  • An innovative Web app that simplifies process within a vertical?

  • A mobile app that changes how we communicate between the field and office?

  • A brilliant epiphany that's light-years ahead of its time?

Whatever it is, you'll need to think big. Have fun with the brightest minds in the industry as they push the boundaries of what's possible in technology. You could even change work as we know it.
