15,000 of the brightest minds in the US, and you.

Between a huge nationwide reach and the highest quality events proven to inspire, CodeDay is the best resource for organizations looking to engage with the next generation of developers.

An Event Unlike Anything You've Seen

CodeDay is unlike anything in the country: an event which attracts thousands of students for the purposes of learning, exploring, and having fun with code.

CodeDay follows a format you might have heard termed a hackathon: students attend CodeDay and spend 24 hours building interesting apps or games from scratch. Unlike traditional hackathons, however, CodeDay does not have a focus on prizes, and participants are judged based on what they learned at the event.

As a result, attendees at CodeDay are some of the most dedicated and talented programmers of today and tommorow, and we've helped many of the top companies reach this unique set of students:

Big Reach

  • Over 15,000 community members
  • 3,000 attendees each season
  • 38 cities regularly participating in events
  • 13,000 followers on social media

Big Impact

  • 43% Women
  • 38% Low-Income Background
  • 28% African-American and Hispanic

Community-Level Sponsorships

srnd.org is a 501(c)(3) public charity with a mission to inspire students everywhere to learn to code. Each student who attends CodeDay costs us $36, meaning the average CodeDay costs $4,500 to run.

By sponsoring CodeDay, you are helping build a better future for students in your community. Your sponsorship directly supports:

  • Broader marketing to students of under-represented groups in your city
  • Providing scholarships to students in need

By contributing $250-$1,000 for one city, or $2,500 for a national sponsorship, you can help make CodeDay happen. In addition:

  • Your logo will be listed on the CodeDay website, along with a link back to your site.
  • You'll get a sign at the event with information about your company, and you can distribute swag.
  • We'll tell students about your company at the kickoff, and explain why you support them (or you can send your own rep to speak).
  • You and your employees can attend the event and meet the students.

API and Recruiting Sponsorships

Because CodeDay has a unique focus on learning and downplays prizes and showing off for recruiters, students who attend CodeDay genuinely love to solve difficult problems and learn new technologies. Our partners have told us that these students become fanatics of their products, and advocate for these technologies in their careers, and the many companies who have hired interns from CodeDay have been very pleased.
