Hack City brings developers and entrepreneurs together with corporate executives, city officials and others key players that recognize the opportunities in the innovative use of data and digital technologies, and the benefits they bring to business, the environment, and society.

Hack City is the entrepreneurial engine of VERGE, GreenBiz Group’s global event series focusing on the intersection of technology and sustainability. Hack City, like VERGE, is about breaking down silos and convening a new ecosystem of players. The goal: harnessing the power of business and technology to improve lives and move the needle on our most pressing environmental and social challenges.
