Hackathons and startups aren't all about tech!
There's a real temptation to think that new ventures and startups are all purely about new technology, and that the technology is the hard part. The reality is that it is not the case.
The truly hard part of building a new thing is working out *which* new thing to build, not how to build it. People who have experience in how things were done and how they could be done bring the vast majority of the value to these events.
