Hacking for Homebuilding

September 27 - October 7

Compete for $40,000+ in cash prizes while solving real-world problems in the homebuilding industry.

Boise State University’s Venture College and College of Engineering are excited to offer Hacking for Homebuilding to higher education students across Idaho. New this year, Hacking for Homebuilding will also offer a second track, open to the general public.

During this reverse pitch competition, industry partners identify challenges they face and pose these as problem statements. Participants select a problem to solve, and refine their solutions into ventures through research, customer discovery, and idea validation. Teams pitch their solutions for cash prizes, and this year’s finalists will pitch during Boise Entrepreneur Week!

Participants will have the chance to work with industry leaders, developing a strong network that will last well beyond the competition. In addition to these connections, there will be funding awarded to the top three teams in both tracks.

  • Student Track: $20,000+ in cash prizes
  • Public Track: $20,000+ in cash prizes
