Hackmakers DAO Launch:

Open innovation for everyone
Hackmakers DAO is a community organisation that will accelerate and enable innovations, through rewarding and investing in winners, mentors and founders of hackathon challenges based on democratic merit
Proven track record of success
Since 2020, we have delivered over 8 flagship innovation events, building a community of over 15,000+ hackers, with over 20 clients and 150 partners, including UNESCO, UNEP, Oracle, AWS, Polygon Technology and Google Cloud.
Flagship hackathon events delivered
Community of participants & mentors
Backing universities and regional partners
Global affiliate & social media reach
We want to make innovation accessible and rewarding for all contributors in the ecosystem, big and small.
We are creating a first of its kind “Innovate to Earn” system that incentives all participants for their contribution, and gives community support to investible winners to commercialise.
Our accompanying DAO and accelerator program will empower innovators, students, mentors, web3 hackers, entrepreneurs, investors and organisations to collaborate and accelerate even faster.
Join the innovation ecosystem of tomorrow.
A DAO, or “Decentralized Autonomous Organization,” is a community-led entity with no central authority. It is fully autonomous and transparent: smart contracts lay the foundational rules, execute the agreed upon decisions, and at any point; proposals, voting, and even the very code itself can be publicly audited.
FOR OUR PARTICIPANTS AND COMMUNITY:
78% of tech learners and professionals want incentives for innovating and developing their skills. Get rewarded for participating in a hackathon, and innovating new ideas!
FOR OUR INNOVATION & TECH CLIENTS:
71% of tech organisations want to boost product adoption and innovation capability, and hire talent. This is your ticket to get connected with web 3.0 developers and makers, and hire talent through our innovation programs!
FOR EARLY INVESTORS:
54% of early investors are looking for earlier dealflows to maximise returns, especially in web3. Due to lack of transparency, great solutions that come out of hackathons rarely get to commercialise!
