This year’s HackOut was a great success! So many innovative ideas, amazing people, and an overall unforgettable experience, and it’s all thanks to StartOutStartup WeekendLesbians Who Tech, & Techstars!

The event began on Thursday night in Downtown Austin and ended on Sunday evening as participants gave their final pitches to a panel of judges. From Friday to Sunday, participants brainstormed, designed, built, tested, rebuilt and perfected their products. The winning team, Kipi Business Intel, went home with 1-year StartOut premium memberships, a 5-day pass to We Work, passes to the Lesbian Who Tech conference, and more!

We want to thank all of the judges and mentors, the event organizers who planned for months, and all of our sponsors who allowed the event to offer scholarships, swag, and more food than any group of 120 should eat in a weekend.
