BizHacks aims to create a platform for people in different faculties and different majors to work together, identify real world problems, and provide solutions to solve the issues. Solutions are a hybrid of business and technology innovations.


Teams can be up to 5 people. As this is a Business/Technology hybrid we encourage a mix of skill sets. We will be launching an interactive tool to help build these partnerships across schools and faculties.

(all members must be physically present at BizHacks)



- Platforms (iOS, Android, Web / Mobile Web, Mac, Windows, hardware hacks)
