Our Mission

Hackbridge was born out of the experiences of two Cambridge Engineering students who spent one year on the “MIT exchange programme” and wanted to bring the “hacker” culture to Cambridge – hence supercharging students’ learning via side-projects outside of their course. We help students develop practical skills by facilitating challenging projects that aim to create either novel research or commercial products. Since the society’s inception just over two years ago, we have grown to a community of around 70 students who’ve worked on at least one project before, with over 20 deeply challenging projects that range from Machine Learning, to Blockchain to SaaS products.

Hackbridge is currently run by a passionate team of students across disciplines and year groups. To achieve our vision, we need as many hands as we can get! We'd be looking for help in sponsorship, event management, web design, speaker-hunting and much more! If Hackbridge is something that you're interested in helping out with - and you want to make a lasting impact on the entrepreneurial environment at Cambridge - please get in touch by emailing [email protected].

If you do reach out, please let us know (very briefly) what you're working on now/have worked on in the past and where you'd like to help! Also, let us know what subject you're studying and what year you're in!
