Dell PolicyHack

Spoke Events

Participate in the Dell PolicyHack

Join Dell for an interactive hack-a-thon that tasks teams of policymakers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and students, along with a “coach”, to design solutions to policy challenges faced by entrepreneurs running growing businesses. Following the hack, the teams will have five minutes to pitch their idea to a panel of experts including Massachusetts government officials as well as the wider audience attending the event. Then, the audience – you – will vote for the winning solution. The winning team will receive a Dell product and commitment from Dell to further develop the proposal.

Attendees will include entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, graduate students, policy experts, technology leaders, and government officials.

Teams will be formed to tackle the issues of reducing youth unemployment and supporting young entrepreneurs, supporting women entrepreneurs, civic technology, advancing STEAM education, and social and environmental entrepreneurship.

Grab your sweatbands, Boston Innovators! The Entrepreneur Games brings more than 1,000 members of Boston’s tech, venture capital, and start-up companies together for an afternoon of fierce, but friendly competition and networking. Participants compete in more than 40 games, from team events like dodgeball, basketball, and tug-of-war, to individual events like corn hole, brainteasers, and ping pong. Food and drinks are included, with dozens of vendors providing something to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. The event raises over $200K for BUILD Boston, an organization dedicated to using entrepreneurship and experiential learning to ignite the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and equip them for high school, college and career success.
