Sequoia::Hack 2014 Glimpses


Sequoia::Hack is the annual hackathon organized by Sequoia Capital. The aim is to provide a space to build cool, path-breaking tech because it’s fun. And because it can change the world.

We are privileged to have had a ringside view to the world changing many times in the past few decades and we firmly believe in the ability of hackers to make this happen time and again. At the hackathon, we want to get great minds together to build great technology. For folks who prefer to have ideas laid out as challenges, we will provide some. And for folks who already know what they would like to build, this is a great venue to come build it out and collaborate with their peers. Showcase your skills to your peer community, locally and worldwide. All in an intense 24-hour burst.

We recognize that great software needs a confluence of people, ideas, and disciplines. So as part of this event, we will have some of the best designers and UX architects mingling with you to help you design UIs if that’s what you are trying to do. In addition, CEOs, Product Heads, CTOs, technical architects, distinguished engineers, and chief scientists of various companies from India and abroad will be available as mentors, to help guide efforts.


This year we have an exceptional set of mentors that includes CTOs, design & product managers from some of the most exciting technology companies in India & South East Asia.
