Sponsorship Info

What is Spectra?

Spectra is an organization that hosts free full-day events, such as hackathons and workshop days, for young women in tech in the San Francisco Bay Area. In July 2016, we hosted our inaugural hackathon with over 200 women and allies at YouTube HQ in San Bruno, CA.

Spectra is all about creating a safe and inviting environment for women in the tech space. We focus on learning new skills and connecting with like-minded people to help young women advance themselves in the tech world. Spectra believes it's important to host events like these to help students and new grads get comfortable using skills that they've learned to make their cool and creative ideas tangible.

Our 2017 hackathon will feature:





days of mentoring, workshops, learning, and more!
hours of hacking with prizes!
women and allies hacking, mentoring, leading workshops, and volunteering
mentor-to-hacking ratio
