In "The Hack-A-Thon," now that everyone has pitched their ideas and sized up their competition, they are ready for their second assignment. Charlie informs the entrepreneurs that they will participate in a hack-a-thon; they have thirty-six hours to create an entirely new business idea and present the working prototype to Tim, Jesse Draper (Entrepreneur and Angel Investor) and Ben Parr (Venture Capitalist, Entrepreneur & Author). As the deadline rapidly approaches, Shawn, David, Carly and Malcolm's confidence in their project may prove to be their undoing, while Keyonna's team aims to redefine sperm donation.
