While most hackathon ideas die after the event, we’d like to see #HackingConflict projects succeed. Below is a list of possible funding sources for teams to consider. If we missed opportunities that you’d like to share, please add them to the comments section below and we will work on updating this page as new sources arise.

- Crowdfunder – “connects entrepreneurs with investors around the world to help fund their business and fuel economic growth.”
