Qeyno’s mission is to lift barriers to human potential to meet the ultimate challenges of the future.
Launched in 2013 in the wake of the Trayvon Martin American tragedy, Qeyno (then Qeyno Labs) took a leap forward from software development to moonshot a hackathon experience with Startup Weekend that would address the question, "Could an app have saved Trayvon Martin?"
After the groundbreaking success of the first hackathon for Black Male Achievement in Oakland (CA), Qeyno created a pop-up school experience that modified the traditional hackathon model to make it accessible to low opportunity youth and a healthy environment for all youth.
Hackathon Academy has served clients from celebrities such as Prince to nationwide initiatives like President Obama's My Brother's Keeper call-to-action. As our pop-up school model is replicated by companies and organizations across the globe, Hackathon Academy continues to be the home for teen hackers solving the world's biggest problems.
