AngelHack is the World’s Leader in Hackathons and Developer Relations. Owned by Tribex, AngelHack organizes and manages some of the largest hackathons in the world, bringing new applications to more than 300K developers around the world.
This platform has served more than 250 companies like Accenture, Huobi, Binance, UBS, and Microsoft, in supporting their developer initiatives and getting their technology into the hands of their huge developer community.
We spoke to the CEO, Yiming, based in Singapore, and found out what's the sizzle, the inspiration behind AngelHack’s operations.
What makes AngelHack exciting/disruptive/unique in your opinion and stand out against others in the market?
AngelHack is probably the leading developer hackathon organizer on a global level. At this moment, the platform is trusted by more than 300 companies including Google, Mastercard, Nvidia etc.
Imagine just 5 years ago, no one could do a virtual hackathon or tech quest globally and on this large scale. Everything is local and the impact and the reach to the developer community is much smaller. The speed and impact of introducing any new technology using our platform Stackedup.dev (app.stackedup.dev)has significantly increased the tech adoption of many of our clients.
We are growing super. Committed to also growing our homegrown developer community, we are partnering with Temasek, IMDA, industry leaders like Google, and more to train and groom 100,000 developers locally in the next 2 years.
