Requirements and Costs vary massively between events. Use this Excel Budget Template to select which line items you need, and then to populate with real figures for your target Venue, Participant count, and aspirational format.
Use this Excel sheet as a crib sheet to ensure you capture possible costs before you commit.
How to use this Budget Sheet
This works as a standard Excel sheet, with no macros or complex formulas; it is a simple budget.
- Run through each item, and decide whether you need the item or not.
- Once you have decided which items you need, discard the lines you don’t need, and then research the cost of the suppliers and venues that are of interest to you.
- If you are running a Hackathon for longer than 2 days, or shorter, adjust the catering line items to reflect that.
