  2. 2. COMPETITION BACKGROUND Future of Sex, in partnership with YouPorn hosted the Future of Sex x YouPorn Sextech Hackathon in New York on August, 24--26. The sextech hack brought together the world’s leading authorities in sextech to inspire, discuss, and mentor teams as they innovated solutions to a range of issues. The event provided the opportunity to collaborate and get involved in the fast growing $20B Sextech industry. The hackathon aimed to hit key objectives such as raising awareness and catalysing innovation, while encouraging participation from a diverse range of voices to discover better solutions to current sexual health issues. The hackathon also strived to support new female-identified leaders who are passionate about changing the world to drive innovation further in the field. A FAST-PACED INNOVATION
  3. 3. 60% FEMALE PARTICIPATION THE EVENT The pre-event briefing saw over 100 participants, mentors and subject matter experts come together to hear stories of lived experience and learn about the challenges for the weekend. The challenge statements were “pitched” to the assembled audience of hackers, hipsters, hustlers and sexologists by the “Challenge Owners”, and then the participants took the stage and microphone. They had only 30 seconds to lightning pitch their idea and call for team members. In the chaos that ensued as team speed dating took place, 12 new teams emerged. Some had never met before. Some had no idea what to expect. Over 70% of the participants had never been to a hackathon before. 60% of the participants were female. We were breaking new ground.
