To officially register for the event, sign up at Open to all middle and high schoolers (grades 6-12).


The Project Venture Investment Hackathon immerses students in a fast-paced, real-world business experience. Through one of three competition pathways, you'll be tasked with researching and addressing a given problem, then present your solution to industry professionals. Some pathways will require your solution to be an investment strategy, while others will allow you to propose any solution you'd like. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams in each pathway. Guest speakers will supplement this experience by offering insights into diverse business topics, careers in business, and the importance of financial planning. Please visit for more information about Project Venture and the 2021 Investment Hackathon (further details will be posted soon).
