We know what it takes to build a stellar innovation program from ground up.

As high schoolers, we were lucky enough to experience the magic of hackathons.

We went on to run our own programs for our communities, build platforms for our schools, blog profusely about our stories, and share similar stories on a national stage.

We want to work with you to give your students a story of their own to tell.

Meet The Leaders.

Execute Big is founded by 3 experienced event organizers from 3 unique cities. Together, we bring insights from around the nation to help run successful programs in your region.

What's the cost?

For each event, we charge a set amount to reimburse our team of event organizers as well as an extra 7% to support the operation of Hack Club, our parent program.

What is “hacking”?

No, we’re not “hacking” servers or databases. The word is being constructively re-defined as building things—apps, games, websites, etc.

How are we non-profit?

Execute Big is a subsidiary of a non-profit organization. The team only receives a fair compensation for their contribution, and the rest is passed on as a donation to the organization.
