Benefits of Hackathons

24 hours or even 48 hours may not be enough for most people to build anything significant but if you have participated in a hackathon before, you will know the kind of great ideas that can be built within such a short period of time. Here are some of the major benefits of hackathons and you can pick any of these to be the primary goal of your next event.



Tech Innovation

Attract techies, creatives & entrepreneurs who are passionate about solving problems through tech. They can bring fresh ideas to your organisation. Our participants have always managed to build amazing prototypes within 24-48 hours, that can easily be implemented in the real world with a bit of polishing.


Branding & PR

It’s always great to position your brand as a tech ecosystem builder, and showcase your commitment towards innovation. Organising hackathons will definitely add a “cool” factor to your brand, and a great way to collaborate with other well-known brands in the tech ecosystem.


Community Engagement

Great opportunity to build an active tech community around your organisation or brand by actively engaging your local developers & creatives. It’s great to build a long term relationship with the tech community, which can help activate many other corporate innovation programmes for your brand.


HR & Recruitment

Solid platform to identify tech and creative talents for recruitment. You are able to observe potential talents in action, and their ability to work in a team. At a JomHack hackathon you will be able to directly interact with 300 - 500 potential candidates over a few days, to better identify suitable talents who will be a best-fit for your organisation.

Our Community

Over the years, we have built a strong community of techies and entrepreneurs who are passionate about solving problems through technology.
