We've got stories to share
Whether you're an attendee, mentor, or an organizer, you'll come to HackBeanpot with a story to tell.
Here's a collection of stories of previous attendees. Our hackers are our priority and we aim to have everyone walk out with stories as unique and inspiring as these!
"There was definitely a lot of support and direction, both with the staff and mentors from actual companies. If you wanted to do something and didn’t know how to do it, there was definitely people you could talk to that would help you learn how. HackBeanpot had a lot of people just giving talks about things in computer science that people may want to learn, and I feel like that was really cool because it was so easy to learn and pick up new things."
- Shane, Attendee
... And we've got a story to tell.
In 2013, a small group of Northeastern students brought 80 students together at the Microsoft NERD Center for the very first HackBeanpot, an opportunity for students to express their creativity and explore. 2019 marks our seventh annual event and carries forward the same mission we began with: to foster a diverse community of curious students and engage them with the Boston tech community
Although our mission remains the same year to year, our core team has the freedom to take the event in a new direction each year. By taking calculated risks and challenging ourselves to both improve the organization and meet our own personal goals, each of our events has a different personality the reflects the unique team behind it. From revamping our brand, to updating our sponsorship strategy and even changing the internal structure of our team, we have had a blast learning together and making this year’s event our own!
