Digital Business Hackathon
The hacking started on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 5 pm and ended on Saturday, October 17 at 5 pm.
We strongly support local business and the aim of the hackathon was to help innovate and plan digital solutions for local companies. The solution could be:
- the creation of entirely new online services
- planning a system for online event organization
- designing virtual sales stands
- entirely rethinking online sales channels and a web-store
- or whatever fantastic solution your hackathon team creates!
Entrepreneurs and students
We were looking for both local entrepreneurs (student entrepreneur teams welcome!) to provide challenges for the hackathon and enthusiastic hackathon participants.
Student participants received 2 study credits for participation, and all hackathon participants who were in a pitching team will receive a 50 euro restaurant voucher for food.
During the event we provided mentoring and other help for idea-creation and successful team work in a virtual team.
From participants we expected an open mind and a willingness to work with people you have possibly not met before.
