Q&A: A guidebook to successful hackathons

Our Q&A series gets member questions answered; if you’ve got one, just drop us an e-mail, and let us know if you’d like an answer from a company of a particular size or industry (or even from a specific person or company.)

This question was tackled by Sara Husk, a managing associate at Imaginatik. We asked Sara to tackle this question due to her direct experience in the field; she was previously with The Hartford Insurance Company.

Question:
