ProtoHack exists to show non-coders that they can create something amazing from nothing. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge and connections that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping.

This event is a 12-hour competition where aspiring or established entrepreneurs, with or without tech skills, come together to connect, collaborate, and create their ideas through prototyping and pitching. Throughout the competition, there will be breakout sessions and mentors to educate attendees on improving their work. Previous companies that have participated include pitch mentors from ToastMasters, Vancity Buzz, and design mentors from Momentus Software, Hootsuite, Red Academy, and At the end of the competition, teams will have 90 seconds to pitch to a panel of VC’s, angels, and amazing founders from Plug and Play Ventures Canada, Vision Critical, Hillcore Capital, New Avenue Capital and more. Top three winners will get the chance to win exclusives prizes worth over $10,000 in patent protection, design and branding services, and development work. For more information, please visit
