We love to make things. To think through a problem, come up with a great solution, and then make it come to life. That’s why SEP Makes is special: because it brings us together for an insightful weekend of pitching, conceptualizing, and making. Not to mention some sleepless nights.
Hackathon: Pitches, products, prototypes and more
Twice a year, we come together for a weekend of pitches, conceptualization, and making.
Influenced by the Kaufmann Foundation’s Startup Weekend, SEP gathers our eager makers into our offices. Beginning early Friday night, these creative builders embark on a journey of self-discovery and a search for new skills and technologies.
The hackathon is built around the same techniques and processes found in SEP’s daily successes, with a few twists. Individuals come prepared with a software or application idea. The group votes on the best ideas, splits into teams, and begins work on creating a functioning product that can be demonstrated by the end of the 48-hour session

Our sandbox is a place where our innovative makers get to tinker with new ideas. Sometimes these ideas turn into products, other times they stay as thought experiments – either way, we love to share them!

Since we work on many projects that use open source tools and libraries, we want to return the favor when we can. Whether a library or a fully realized product, we hope the open source community takes what we’ve started and solves problems through ingenuity and imagination.
Build awesome things for fun.
