There's no such thing as a dumb question.

OK, We'll Go First.

I can’t go anymore? Can I get a refund?

We're bummed that you can't go anymore! Our refund policy is as follows: We'll refund any ticket if it's outside of a 2-week window. If you're wanting your refund within two weeks of an event happening, due to catering, venue, etc. we aren't able to accommodate.

Will my idea be protected?

While we don't make attendees sign NDAs, it's very hard for your idea to be stolen. An idea is more than a 90-second pitch, it's about passion, background expertise, and a drive that usually can't be matched by someone else. When Uber launched you saw Lyft, Yellow Cab and everyone else follow suit, but the way Uber stayed on top is they always innovative and changed to adapt to users. In the three years, we've never had a complaint!

Who attends ProtoHacks?

Everyone! And people from all walks of life, from experienced business professionals, designers and developers to people who just have a really, really good idea. We don't discriminate as long as you're open-minded, looking for strong mentorship and a nudge in the right direction.

Where do ProtoHack events take place? Is there on in my city?

We've been to over 23+ cities across 11 countries and our bucket list of cities to hold events in is getting smaller by the day. Check out our events section to see which cities we'll be in next here.

Is your city not listed yet? No worries, give us a shout letting us know that we should host in your city. Better yet, sign up to be a director and get the party started now.

How much does it cost to attend?
