What Is InfraHack?

The world’s population is growing exponentially, and the pressure this puts on infrastructure like roads, airports, waterworks, railways and low cost energy will increase. InfraHack’s mission is to drive forward Industry 4.0 to create sustainable infrastructure through to our future generations.

We are going to do this by bringing together the best technology and infrastructure experts in the world challenging them to build new solutions that solve the industry’s critical problems.

"You guys run the best hackathons in the world!"

Tom Ewing, 20+ time hackathon participant.

You’re probably wondering, what made Tom say this. It’s not because we plastered him with beer, we promise! It’s because our hackathons challenge our hand-picked participants to go above and beyond their own capabilities, every single time.

By combining the smartest minds in the world with leading experts from traditional sectors we have created movements that quite literally have changed entire industries.

That’s why, people like Tom come to every hackathon we run.
