“HackOut is the first-ever, two-day, LGBT-oriented hackathon presented by StartOut. We are looking for individuals or teams that want to change the way we think by hacking a new demo in one weekend. It’s a great way to meet new friends, other entrepreneurs, investors and incubators. Developers, programmers, coders and geeks of all kind will have access to incredible mentors from leading companies like Facebook and IBM and a complimentary $2,000 credit to start building applications on Google App Engine and Google Compute Engine. Rackspace is also donating more than $24,000 in cloud computing services to the winning teams. StartOut is pleased and grateful to announce that Curious Cat Company, Facebook, Google, Hirestarter, HomeStart, Launch Marketing, Jones Spross PLLC, KCL Foundation, Mortgage Portfolio Services, Rackspace, Stripe and Thinktiv have signed on as leading sponsors of HackOut, with Capital Factory acting as the venue sponsor. The first-place winner will also receive $2,500 and an in-kind messaging consulting session from Launch Marketing.”
