AlphaHacks is Target Alpha’s annual hackathon that gives hackers everywhere a chance to show off their skills and win amazing prizes in fields ranging from business to healthcare and medicine.

The two tracks that we'll be having this year are the Proposal Track and Development Track. For the development track, a product must be built with code, while for the proposal track, only wireframes and a pitch video are required.

We’ve got an amazing list of sponsors and prizes that we’re pumped to share with you. We’re completely virtual this year, but nearly everything from a traditional hackathon will be present at AlphaHacks!
