WHAT IS A HACKATHON?
Hackathon is an innovative way of including creative individuals into finding and solving the challenges of your company. Our hackathons offer an answer not only to innovation challenges that companies today are facing, but also to their increasing HR challenges. More and more companies are aware that proactive new employees are essential for successful operations in the radically changing business environment. Because young people, or Gen-Z as some may call them, are mostly present and feel quite comfortable in the virtual environment, we have created the Online hackathon next to our traditional (on-site) hackathon.
On-site hackathon: a live event where 50 – 100 external or/and internal competitors are put in teams to create and pitch (present) a new solution to the corporate challenge in only 36 – 72 hours.
Online hackathon: an online event, with no limited numbered of participants and with a timeline that suits the corporation (e.g. could be 2 days or 1 month). The competitors are put in teams or compete individually to create and pitch (present) a new solution to the corporate challenge.
