About Major League Hacking

Major League Hacking (MLH) is the official student hackathon league. Each year, we work with more than 200 weekend-long invention competitions (hackathons) that inspire innovation, cultivate communities and teach computer science skills to more than 65,000 students around the world. At MLH powered Hackathons, students can expect to have access to the latest and greatest technology in a fun and safe learning environment. By spreading hackathons around the world, MLH has jumpstarted the student hacker movement and helped build the largest community of student hackers in the world.

Being a B Corp enables us to continue to iterate on the ways we serve our community, build an amazing team, and ensure that MLH is always driven by the same mission that drives my co-founder and I every day.

The Change We Seek®

Major League Hacking believes that hackers are changing the world. The students who attend their events are tomorrow's innovators and inventors. Whether it's a website, mobile app, or robot, every weekend their community pushes the limits of what's possible by building amazing things. Major League Hacking is inspired by their continuous learning and commitment to impacting the world around them. They want to embody those same traits in Major League Hacking (MLH) as an organization.
