What is HackerStash?
HackerStash is private community with a weekly tournament designed to help you drive your project forward whilst supporting projects and services you love.
You’ll share updates and news about your project and vote on competing projects, with the top competitors winning cash prizes each week to help drive their projects forward.
A HackerStash subscription costs $9 per month, and the prize pool gets larger as more projects take part.

Why you should join
Fund great projects, and your own!
Not all projects or businesses need huge cash injections to help them launch or find product market fit. That said, small amounts can make a huge difference and help you get there faster!
Every week the top HackerStash projects win small cash prizes to help fund their projects, no strings attached.
Accelerate your business
Community engagement is one of the secret weapons of a successful founder.
You don’t need an elite network or deep expertise across all subject areas, by coming together and helping each other we can all learn to fail faster and succeed more often.
The community is in control
Your votes, and those of other community members, determine the winners each week - there’s no invisible hand tipping the scales and the rules are 100% transparent.
Not only that, but each week the tournament restarts and scores are wiped, so nobody gains an advantage from being a member for longer.

The more points your project earns, the higher you are ranked on the leaderboard. Each week the tournament closes at midnight GMT on a Sunday, after which point the winners are announced.
Why We Started HackerStash
Too many great business ideas fail before they’ve even managed to find their feet and we think HackerStash can leverage the transformational value of community particpation to change that.
