Launch your idea with BOLT during one of our hackathons
Each hackathon has a unique theme, industry specialist mentors, judges and prizes. Each physical event takes place over the course of 48 hours while each virtual event can last up to four days. In specific circumstances, some of our events will include a hybrid solution whereby certain participants, mentors or even judges can virtually attend the events.
