About

What is HackCouture?

HackCouture is two things.  A hackathon team and a consultancy.

  1. Team HackCouture was formed in the weeks before the first Seattle Interactive Conference’s Wearable Computing Hackathon.  We love participating in hackathons and decided that we want to continue doing this as a team.
  2. HackCouture LLC is a buisiness formed shortly after we participated in our first hackathon.  The goal of HackCouture LLC is to provide world-class wearable computing products and services.
