HackIowa is a student organization at the University of Iowa, founded in 2017, that strives to grow its members personally, professionally, and academically in order to obtain careers in the technology industry. In practice, this is done by helping students prepare for, travel to, and attend hackathons. We provide support to students through mentorship, development of application-based learning, and hands-on projects. Throughout the year, we sponsor tech talks and connect alumni and tech companies to our members. We connect our members to alumni, local tech companies, and large corporations--striving to grow and strengthen the tech community at Iowa.
