Sponsor Us

Why sponsor?

We connect you to the next generation of developers, thinkers and entrepreneurs.

Sponsoring UNIHACK is a great way to connect with the top IT students from the the University of Melbourne, Monash University, the University of Sydney, the UNSW, RMIT and other tertiary institutions across Australia. Similar hackathons in the United States and Europe have provided sponsors access to many talented students who end up working for them in the future.

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

  • Meet talented students: Get access and establish personal relationships with some of the most driven and talented computer science, design, electrical and software engineering students from some of Australia’s top tertiary institutions – before anyone else.
  • Witness these students perform during ideation, planning, building and presentation of their solutions. We provide a real environment for teamwork and execution, outside of the classroom or assessment centre setting.
  • Real-time adoption of products and feedback: This is the time when students will be able to try your product. They’ll be hacking away, trying new things and experimenting on how to bring your API/hardware to be used to the next level in ways you’ve not thought of before. You can also provide feedback and support as a mentor with their ideas and pitch.
  • 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.
  • 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 promoting innovation in Australia.

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.
