StrategyHack is a full-day event dedicated to accelerating startup growth. We select awesome startups and match them with brilliant marketers to collaborate and create tailored marketing strategies.


Unlike other hackathons, this one brought real teams addressing real problems. Everyone came with a real product and a desire to get things done. Everyone learned something and wanted to help each other out.

StrategyHack is exactly what it sounds like - a whole day devoted to helping startups grow. It's like a hackathon for marketing strategy. We pick out badass product teams and match them with brilliant marketing strategists, according to the needs of the startups and the talents of the marketers.


Startups are paired with some of the best marketing minds in NYC to craft a comprehensive strategy that will grow their business. Strategists get the opportunity to work with NYC's emerging entrepreneur community to creatively solve unique startup marketing challenges.  At the end of the day, each startup leaves with a tailored strategy that can be implemented in the coming weeks.

Join us for a furious day of StrategyHacking fueled by coffee, pizza, sweets, creativity, raw startup passion and lots of fun! 

Do you have what it takes to become a StratHacker?

Having multiple brains thinking about a problem you are stuck on is incredibly helpful. The energy and new ideas help take something you are really passionate about and give it life.
