The very first SexTech Hackathon in NYC!

In the next few decades, our sex lives will undergo incredible change. By 2020 sextech is predicted to be a multi-billion dollar industry, and some will go as far to say a trillion dollar industry. More voices and ideas are urgently needed to change the patriarchal dynamic of the sextech industry. It’s time to create a more inclusive, healthy future of sexuality!

• What Is SexTech? Most simply, SexTech is any technology designed with the intention of enhancing human sexuality and human sexual experience.

Why Should You Care?

Innovations in sextech will allow us to experience, express, and understand our sexualities in ways we never thought possible!

The SexTech Hackathon. What’s That?

It’s a 1-day event in which all members will collaborate intensively on creating sextech products. Unlike other hackathons that may require some coding expertise, we are open to all skills and experience levels. Gathering together with a group, you will innovate, and depending on the expertise of the team, try to create a working product. At the end of the day, you will pitch a product or simply a vision of what you are going to create - as a presentation, web-site, app, prototypes, etc.

Who Can Participate?

SexTech Hackathon is open to all, but aimed to support female-identified leaders of this field and drive further innovation. We welcome anyone interested in elevating the voices and perspectives of women in sextech, whether you’re a designer, developer, marketer, entrepreneur, project manager or even therapist or sexologist.

Program Format & Schedule Kicking off on 10th of June 2017, 10am Saturday morning, with a round of lightning talks from inspiring mentors. We will form teams according to categories of interests. You’ll spend the afternoon working together to bring your project to life, and finish the day pitching your creation to a panel of mentors.

Schedule:

10am - Lightning talks

11am - Team formation

11:30am to 6pm - Work on your projects 6pm - Pitching and Feedback

7.00pm - Celebration, networking

This is a draft schedule, check back for updates! While we recognize sexuality is a diverse field, we will not be accepting hack teams for anything related to pornography or entertainment.
