"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

No Coding. No Problem!

InspireHacks is Toronto's first ever student-led, one-day design hackathon.

Conventional hackathons tend to have a strong focus on the technical and implementation aspects of software development. However, in today's tech world implementation is only a fraction of what it takes to make a product successful. InspireHacks is uniquely built for app and web designers to learn new skills and show off their expertise while connecting with other teens and experts in the field.

Participants will form into teams at the beginning of the day, and from there, they will brainstorm and create their prototype solution using programs like InVision, Marvel, and Balsamiq. Teams will then take their idea and iterate upon it during the course of the day. Near the end of the day, teams will then pitch their idea to a panel of judges. The top teams will be awarded.

InspireHacks allows you to build your ideas through prototyping and designing. No coding experience is necessary at all. We teach you the basics from the ground up. Bring your ideas and remember to INNOVATE, CREATE, and INSPIRE.
