Why Sponsor GovHack

GovHack sponsorship aligns your organisation with a respected community event which has established strong ties with developer communities, industry and all levels of Government.

Sponsors receive a number of benefits including:

  • National and local media coverage
  • State or Red Carpet Award Night exposure
  • Featured datasets
  • brand exposure at events and websites
  • opportunities to showcase products and expertise
  • engagement with all levels of government and industry
  • opportunity to connect with the best developers and innovators
  • global markets.

Submit a featured dataset

As a sponsor, you can submit a dataset (or datasets) which will be featured to competitors.   On data.gov.au alone there are over 7000 datasets that can be used in entries.  As a sponsor you can shine some light on your data, and encourage reuse in the competition by submitting featured datasets.

Alternatively, you could feature a theme of data from your publishing organisation by submitting an appropriate link.

The dataset(s) featured must be in line with our open data principles and at a minimum must be:

  • Discoverable on an official government data portal
  • Open format
  • Openly licensed

Sponsorship packages

Various sponsorship packages are available for both Corporate and Government sponsors.

Each State and Official Location also offers attractive sponsorship opportunities.

Too good an opportunity to miss out!
