About HackerNest

Community. Hackathons. Jobs. Tech ecosystems. Prosperity for all.


Uniting Tech Communities


HackerNest is a nonprofit organization and movement that builds local tech communities around the world. We believe they are the cornerstones of economic development: we want more people to get into tech so they can afford to live healthier and happier. Our down-to-earth Tech Socials and epic, socially beneficial hackathons encourage camaraderie, collaboration, innovation, mentorship, knowledge-sharing, and so much more.

Our local, volunteer-run splinter cells (chapters) have spread entirely organically – a testament to the relevance and importance of our mission. We are piloting the “Unite” ecosystem platform in Toronto before we roll it out to the HackerNest universe – the next step in our evolution. It’s on Wikipedia, so it must be true.





Our esteemed sponsors and partners include the likes of the UK and Canadian governments, Facebook, Amazon, Airbnb, Microsoft, the Alzheimer’s Society, et al. To join their stellar ranks, please email [email protected].
