Register

Who

We are looking for teams of 2-4 people. Team registration is required.

We are looking for people with a can-do and will-do attitude, we won’t bother you with workshops or speeches during the hacking – we will let you build your product while offering you every technical and professional support you need.

Where

Comfortable location, strong internet connection, and refreshments will be provided, you should bring your ideas and device(s) to work on.

How

Throughout the weekend, mentoring will be offered by industry experts and participants will have the chance to practice their pitches during a short training before presenting to the Jury on Sunday afternoon.

What

During the hackathon there is no need to completely finalize the project you are working on but it must be more than just an idea (e.g. a presentation or clickable prototype). The closest way to describe what we are looking for would be "a working prototype of a key functionality" that ultimately needs to be presented to a professional jury.
