KWM #breakinglaw Hackathon
The #breakinglaw Hackathon is a competition where multidisciplinary teams of students from across UTS and KWM employees develop innovative technology driven solutions to legal problems.

UTS academics and lawyers from KWM will assist you in formulating new and innovative ways to solve real-life problems. Using technology, problem themes may include the 21st century digital age, remote working, online personal data and protecting creative work.
Sydney Women Startup Weekend
Sydney Women Startup Weekend is an initiative of Techstars and the UTS Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit. In the span of 54 hours participants will learn to create a company whilst meeting with mentors, investors, cofounders and sponsors and receive a pack with tools and credits to help get their startup off the ground. Prizes range from coworking space to mentoring sessions and opportunities to pitch at global events.
Centering around open data published by the government, this annual hackathon is held simultaneously in multiple locations with UTS hosting the Sydney spot. GovHack is open to everyone and encourages using the published data to think outside the box.
