The GoldenHack is a business hackathon held at Laurier on
We are accepting around 150 students to come to Laurier to code, design and innovate in this multidisciplinary event. The attendees will solve fun and challenging problems over 24 hours, and we’d love for you to be a part of it! We are inviting not only student developers, but also design and business students to encourage well-rounded teams.
As a “business hackathon” our aim is to blend the worlds of business and technology. We often find that business and design students are not encouraged to participate or are underrepresented in hackathons and we want to change that!
Hackathons are wonderful experiences to build something amazing
literally overnight. Students get to network, learn, collect cool
sponsor swag, make friends, and get free food all while being 100%
sleep deprived. This is an experience that anyone interested in
creative problem solving should not miss.
We are committed to building a prosperous community and having fun while doing it.
It was great to see so many people passionate about designing interesting projects! Everyone was willing to help each other, including people from other teams, providing a great sense of community.

Competing in The GoldenHack gave me the opportunity to practice my technical and business skills that I learned in the classroom. I was also able to meet like-minded individuals who shared an interest for business and technology like me!

The golden hack was the first hackathon I ever attended. The 24 hours helped me push myself both mentally and physically! The uniqueness of the challenges and the variety of workshops made the experience even more memorable!
