Our Past Work

Cloud Sprint

The largest Alphabet Company engaged Hackworks to help them connect with their enterprise clients in a more in-depth way, help them understand the capabilities of their Cloud Platform, and to build deeper relationships between the client and The Alphabet Company’s team of engineers.


The Elevate team, working with founding partner TD, approached Hackworks to help create Toronto’s biggest hackathon. Over a 48-hour hackathon at MaRS, more than 500 hackers worked tirelessly rallying behind one theme: How can we use data and technology to make Toronto a more inclusive, safe and vibrant city in which to live and work.

TD Tech Jam

The TD Think Digital Tech Jam developed and executed in partnership with Hackworks provided a fun and safe environment to expose TD employees to some of the new emerging technologies so they can see how they could be applied to meet the needs of TD employees and more broadly to the banking experience.
