Help support Technica 2020!

Hello Potential Sponsors!

This coming October, students at the University of Maryland will host Technica, our annual all-women and non-binary hackathon, making this our 6th year! Our tentative dates for this year’s hackathon are October 24th-25th, and in an effort to abide by COVID-19 safety measures we will be hosting it virtually. For the past five years, Technica has been the largest all-women and non-binary hackathon in the world, and welcomed over 950 participants from across the country last year. In the span of 24 hours, Technica gives our participants the opportunity to create new applications, websites or hardware projects.

This year, we will be addressing gender inclusivity at a global level through our virtual event. Technica continually brings motivated thinkers together to collaborate and share their innovative ideas. Our focus is on providing a welcoming, engaging and creative environment to support women and non-binary people in tech culture. We pride ourselves in helping both beginners and experienced hackers explore technology and develop their skills.

Not only does Technica serve as an incubator for creating and promoting a gender-diverse workforce in the future, but it also provides an optimal opportunity for recruitment and outreach. As always, participants will be encouraged to interact with sponsors and learn from the mentors and recruiters you provide. We would love for you to get involved as a sponsor for Technica 2020!

Our available sponsorship tiers are listed below. Additionally, we are happy to state that Technica has 501(c)(3) status. Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a part of Technica, or if you have any questions or concerns about the information below. We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,
The Technica Team
