Malaysia are excited to bring AngelHack, the world’s biggest hackathon competition, to Kuala Lumpur. The two-day competition will take place on the 8th of June 2013 at 1337 Accelerator in MSC Malaysia’s Knowledge Workers Development Centre in Cyberjaya. Sponsors include Google, PayPal, Amazon, Blackberry, Facebook, 1337 Ventures and VLT, all looking to support and develop KL’s growing startup community.
World’s Biggest Hackathon Competition
AngelHack’s winning team will join the AngelHack Accelerator program; winning flights, lodging and mentorship to turn their hack into an investment-grade startup. As part of the program, the team will receive mentoring post-hackathon, and two members of the team will be flown into Silicon Valley on the 1st of September for a 10-day stay. During their stay, they will get to demo their product, raise investment, and attend TechCrunch Disrupt. Teams also stand the chance to win other prizes, including the latest Android devices, hotel stays, AWS credits, API prizes and more.
Previous AngelHack winners have gone on to attend famous incubators, including YCombinator, TechStars, AngelPad, MassChallenge and 500 Startups, and have also received attention from big players in the industry. For instance, last year’s AngelHack Toronto winner Airpost.io, received an US$80,000 investment from Microsoft.

In 2013, AngelHack will organize 100 hackathons, bringing together 10,000+ developers in 50+ cities. Winners from every city are put through the AngelHack Accelerator Program, where they receive 12 weeks of mentorship then flown to the SiliconValley to raise investment and meet Silicon Valley elite.
