Australia's First Sextech Hackathon
Brisbane March 23-25, 2018
What is this?
This is your chance to collaborate and get involved with the fast-growing sextech industry. Join a team or bring your own idea and work on solving issues related to sexuality through technology.
This may include new ways to deliver sexual education, products and services for sexual health and wellness, as well as new solutions to dealing with sexual harassment.
Who can join?
We welcome people of all job descriptions, whether you’re a designer, developer, marketer, entrepreneur, project manager, therapist or sexologist. Diverse groups often work incredibly well together to produce the best results.
In particular, we are focused on making space for, and elevating the voices and perspectives of, women-identified people, although we support inclusion of all genders and sexualities.
Why hack sextech?
Sextech is a fast-growing industry gathering global attention for its huge market predictions.
According to The Guardian, the global sextech industry has been estimated at $30B and is growing at more than 30% a year, potentially outpacing high-growth tech sectors like drone manufacturing.
The core of products and services are designed around relationships, bringing new ideas of intimacy, pleasure and desire to the human experience. While there is plenty of potential in this space, it is largely untapped.
We believe that women-identified technologies and thinkers can influence the direction of this market, while also changing the cultural conversation and attitudes toward female sexuality
