Data-driven Desks? Distribute! Hackathon Judges Envision The Future Of Work
Thinking about registering for Distribute! Hackathon, but still have questions? We’ve got you covered.
Distribute! was born from the idea that the brick-and-mortar offices and cubes we know today will be obsolete in the future.
“The future of work for women is not in an expensive office space. It’s in the cloud. It’s around the virtual watercooler, not in a cubicle or on a tech campus.

The best rewards don't come without risks, and there's no better time to start setting goals and taking chances.
