HackaSoton

External Engagement

HackaSoton is a student-led community of skillful and passionate developers and tech-lovers who look for constant improvement by putting their knowledge in practice through entrepreneurial, technical and engineering competitions, conferences and events..


Our community has a very strong entrepreneurial drive and values – we not only encourage engineers towards being business oriented, innovative and disruptive, but we also promote the incredible engineering culture among non-technical individuals.

Our vision consists on bridging the wide gap between technical and non-technical individuals, as for years, both literally speak completely different languages, and therefore cannot achieve an effective communication.

To achieve our vision we organize events around the UK - we have organized numerous events in Southampton including the Startup Weekend 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, the SVC2UK 2013, several RHoK's, and we have even organized events in Romania and Slovenia.
