Why sponsor?

Come and join us in the Imagination Revolution

Since 2014, our mission is to create an environment that encourages software engineering, design and product creativity.

Sponsoring UNIHACK is a great way to support, nurture and connect with the top IT students from Australia's leading unviersities - the very people who will become the next generation of developers, thinkers and entrepreneurs.

Now located in two cities - Melbourne and Sydney - UNIHACK in 2018 promises to be the biggest year ever, with more than 200+ students competing in each city.

This is the best time to sponsor UNIHACK - here’s exactly why...

  • Recruit amazing talent: Since 2014, we’ve attracted and provided access to the best upcoming junior tech talent in the country. Our hackers and alumni have gone on and worked at some of our top-tier technology and engineering companies (many of whom are our sponsors).
  • Attend and engage with students: Send mentors and guests to support and engage with student participants directly. Watch students as they plan, build and pitch their solutions outside a classroom or assessment centre setting.
  • Real-time adoption of products and feedback: Get hackers to adopt your product and collect feedback. They’ll be hacking away, trying new things and experimenting on how to bring your services, hardware, APIs or tooling to the next level, in ways you have not thought of before.
  • Brand recognition and exposure: Show off your company’s technical side through various means – such as social media promotion, tech workshops, and API/hardware demos. Make your name known Australia-wide to students and align your brand with student innovation and creativity.
  • Promote your organisation’s graduate and internship programs through our social media channels and Careers Fair.
  • Say that you supported UNIHACK, an event that is bringing up a new generation of talent in Australia.

Great start to #UNIHACK2016! I've heard some awesome ideas - looking forward to seeing what the teams come up with.

Diversity Commitment

The organisers of UNIHACK are committed in increasing the diversity of UNIHACK competitors. We will be collaborating with Women in ICT and Engineering groups across Australia to help promote the event. We will also collaborate with ICT and Engineering groups that represent LGBT students to ensure they are also represented at UNIHACK.

We are also committed in producing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability and religion. All persons involved in UNIHACK are required to comply with the terms set out in the Hack Code of Conduct this year — including attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff.
