🏳️🌈 STARTUP & STARTOUT 🏳️🌈
HackOut is the world's largest LGBTQIA-themed startup hackathon.
The hardest part of starting up is starting out, and the purpose of this event is to inspire potential entrepreneurs in the LGBTQIA community to learn the ropes of validating an idea for a startup or lifestyle business and turn that idea into a business venture.
Over an extended weekend, you'll meet and work with 100+ other LGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs, validate your ideas, and learn how to create a real company.
Throughout the weekend you'll meet industry expert mentors, be exposed to sponsors from industry technology companies, and potential investors and successful founders — all of who will support you start out and start-up. Regardless of your professional background or experience, your community is here to support you! It'll be a weekend you'll never forget.
The weekend is also being organized in partnership with StartOut, the national nonprofit supporting LGBTQIA entrepreneurs.
#SWHackOut is being hosted in Austin, TX at Vrbo Headquarters in the Domain.
