Get together with a group of people and use your talent to solve a real-world problem.
A hackathon or idea jam is an event where problems and challenges are solved innovatively, using data and technology or ideas.
Events run from one to three days and are a perfect peer-learning environment, fostering new ideas and connections.
We start by identifying a challenge or theme and build the event around it.
What to expect
At a hackathon or idea jam you'll:
- tackle real-life social, environmental, educational or research problems
- work in interdisciplinary teams to create sustainable solutions
- learn how to think entrepreneurially - generate ideas, build or design a way to test these ideas
- make new connections and expand your network
