The world's largest hackathon hits Canada for the first time ever when Angel Hack comes to Toronto this winter.

It'll be held at the Burroughes Building in downtown Toronto on Dec. 1 and 2. During the two-day global event, Canadian participants will compete against rivals in 10 other cities around the world: Tel Aviv, London, Boston, New York, Washington, San Francisco, Seattle, Santiago, Los Angeles and Paris. Previous versions of AngelHack have been held in San Francisco, Boston, New York and Seattle.

At stake are prizes worth more than $650,000, plus a spot in AngelHack's Hackcelerator, a six-week program in Silicon Valley featuring mentorship and funding opportunities. Winners chosen for Hackcelerator also get to take part in demos, media exposure events and investor meetings in the Valley during the weekend of Jan. 24 to 27.

Organizers have already lined up tours for Hackcelerator participants at the Silicon Valley headquarters of Google, Facebook and AngelPad for that Jan. 24 weekend.

Want to apply for AngelHack Toronto? The early bird rate is $39 per person or $79 thereafter. We're not sure exactly when the early bird rate deadline expires, but here's where to find more info about pricing and event details.
