Silicon hollar presents.......
Get ready for the first installment of High Country Hacks, powered by Silicon Hollar, Ascent Business Network and partners: Startup High Country, Appalachian State University and The Greenhouse.
The theme this semester is to Hack for the Community. So bring your ideas and unbridled creativity to downtown Boone in February 2016, and change the world!
This event is open to the public and a is fantastic opportunity to see how student programmers, graphic designers, interface designers and project managers "hack" together different technologies to create a working prototype of a product in less than 48 hours.
Student Hackers not attending App State are invited to register and attend.
You will be hacking at the coolest co-working space in the High Country and home to several local startups. The Greenhouse is the epicenter for high-tech entrepreneurial activity in Boone and is host to the Silicon Hollar Startup Social and home of Startup High Country.
