Hackathon

 

Hackathon is your chance to innovate and solve real problems in a creative way. You don’t need to be a hacker and you don´t have to know how to code to take part of a hackathon. But you do need to be passionate and curios. It´s a startup style event to find innovative solutions for different problems. It can also be a first step of your own startup career. Present your idea, form a team or join the one you like the most, hack the brain and prototype. Never mind if this is your first time doing all this – we have top-notch mentors to guide you every step of the way.
