Hack-A-Pipeline Rules


  • Teams will be formed at the event ranging in size from 3 to 6 people. You can come alone and join a team or bring friends for your own team. Teams must have at least 3 people in order to compete.

  • Prizes will be divided equally between all team members.

  • No pre-existing projects. All projects must be built at the event.

  • All teams retain full ownership of the intellectual property they created during the hackathon. Hack-a-Pipeline claims no rights to any projects or ideas.

  • For Demo Day, you’ll want to show your technology live, even if not all parts are fully functional. We know you had limited time and do not expect perfection.

  • If you break the rules you may be disqualified from the competition.

  • All decisions made by Hack-A-Pipeline and Lift Up MKE are final.
