Community Partner / Sponsor Application

We are now excited to grow the NYUAD Hackathon into a network spanning institutions of higher education from across the world, as well as industry partners. We are interested in institutions that will be able to provide mentors with experience in Quantum Computing related to any field from the sciences to the Arts. We also look for these institutions/departments/companies to identify challenges so participants can work on them during the hackathon. The challenges have to be solvable in three days suitable for a hackathon tech challenge. The mentors can manage and help lead a team during the hackathons.

If your company/academic institution would be interested in community sponsorship or partnering and be affiliated with this event by nominating students, identifying challenges for the hackathon, providing mentors with excellent experience in QC, or sponsoring this event in any way (such as sponsoring travel for mentors or students, sponsoring food for the event or reception, or accommodation or any other way), please sign up this form, and we will get back to you with more details and answer all you questions.

We are also looking for sponsorships as well, so please reach out to us if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.
