Welcome to the MakerDAO Quick Start Guide for Hackathon Organizers. Below you will find all the information you need to know before reaching out to us.
If you would like to have MakerDAO sponsor your hackathon, please have a look at the following checklist and make sure this information is included when you reach out to us at [email protected]
Please reach out to us no later than two weeks before the event.
Priority will be given to hackathons with very conservative sponsorship requirements, that allow us to create long term relationships with developers, and to promote new talent within the MakerDAO community.
