HackState is a student organized hackathon hosted by Mississippi State University’s Association for Computing Machinery chapter. Over a 24 hour period, students from across the country are invited to push their limits and experiment with emerging technologies to develop create new applications and services. HackState is the premier opportunity to unite self-motivated students and trail-blazing companies through their mutual appreciation of innovation.

Our goal at HackState is to provide you, the sponsor, with three investment opportunities which each promise massive returns.


Invest in the future of industry leaders.

Those that attend hackathons tend to be highly motivated and passionate individuals who look to revolutionize the way we live. Through your contribution, you gain the opportunity to recruit fresh minds that bring the lastest techniques and standards to your company.

Receive valuable product feedback.

Throughout the competition, students use technologies provided to us by our affiliates and sponsors to construct game-changing innovations. We encourage you to become a part of their process, see how they use your services, and get real time feedback on your products.

Experience limitless creativity.

We operate with no boundaries or restrictions on the genre of development. Competitors come from all disciplines and bring vast experience to the table. We invite you to come create this audacious environment with us.
