After 10 weeks of creative and exciting fundraising, HackCancer, an organization composed of young professionals in the Bay Area who are dedicated to philanthropy, are ready to host their final event of the year – Mr/Ms Silicon Valley.
Now entering its third year, Mr/Ms Silicon Valley is a startup pitch competition which over the past few years has gained a significant amount of fame. Former contestants include Abtin Rostamian (2014 winner), founder of Loup, Lona Alia Duncan (2013 winner), founder of Styelend, who soon after the competition was accepted into YCombinator, and Charles Michael Yim (2013 runner-up), the founder of Breathometer, and the first contestant ever to raise $1 million dollars on Shark Tank from all of the sharks.
The pitching competition will be followed by HackCancer’s Finale Gala, which will feature renowned DJ’s, live performers, photo booths and will be complete with the amazing skyline views visible from the Westin St. Francis’ Penthouse Imperial floor.
100% of all net proceeds of the event will go to supporting HackCancer’s current philanthropic focus: Leukemia and Lymphoma. The money will be used to fund local clinical trials and research to find a cure for blood cancer, through the programs of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
