@ McHacks


Dear potential sponsor,

We would like to invite you to join us at McHacks, Canada's original collegiate hackathon, hosted annually at McGill University in Montreal on February 2-3, 2019.

Coming back for round six, we are excited to welcome over 600 students to dream up, develop and deploy innovative projects–all in just 24 hours! As a sponsor, you will witness tomorrow’s leaders as they experiment with your technologies and solve problems from the ground up.

What makes McHacks different?

McHacks prides itself on creating an environment that fosters creativity and collaboration.

Over the last 5 years, we’ve seen massive success with the platform that we’ve engineered to allow sponsors to connect with participants. In 2017, McHacks welcomed students from over 70 schools, coming as far as Orlando, Waterloo, New York, and our very own Montreal. When you attend our event, all of Eastern North America becomes your audience.

We plan on continuing the great work we’ve done in the past and scout the strongest students, both technically and otherwise, from across the continent. By sponsoring McHacks, you’ll earn front-row seats to the top talent that we have to offer and a fostered experience to interact with students in the best possible way with our sponsor-exclusive dashboard.

What can I gain from McHacks?

McHacks isn’t just an event for hackers, it’s an event for you as well. As a sponsor, we will work closely with you to ensure that all of your needs and wishes are met. We want you to get the most out of McHacks and join us in making the best hacker experience possible.

Please find attached a sponsorship tier list with details on various ways you can contribute to McHacks 6. If you have sponsorship needs that fit outside of our preset tiers or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you to make McHacks 6 the best one yet.
