About Hackworks

Our mission is to help our clients achieve digital transformation and build innovation competency and confidence in their workforces

At Hackworks, we believe in the power of the crowd.

Our consultants use crowdsourcing, co-creation, and challenge-based learning techniques to produce innovation programs and events where perspectives, inspiration and ideas are shared, minds are expanded and changed, new connections are made, and more resonant solutions are found than any of us could create individually.

We leverage the framework of hackathons to design and execute custom events and programs that deliver on real business objectives related to R&D, technology exploration, corporate venture, digital transformation, innovation culture, skill building, talent brand, brand positioning and client engagement or onboarding. We work with clients in health/life sciences , banking/finance, professional services, government, real estate , non-profits and more.
