Our typical hackathon will have the following format:
Student Participants get 1 week to dive deep into the challenge that is brought in by you. They will explore the context in which your company operates, look for best practices around the world and find out more about your target customers. This will get them fully prepared to start the hackathon day.
Hackathon Day (usually 1 day from 9.00-17.00)
Student participants and company representatives meet up in their teams (physically or online). Our innovation coaches will guide all teams through a structured design process by
providing the teams with timeboxed interactive exercises to develop concrete, innovative and feasible solutions to your challenge. Think about creative thinking exercises and rapid prototyping (e.g. building a customer journey).
Our innovation coaches will constantly guide the teams on team-level by challenging their ideas, challenging their thoughts and helping them to make their ideas concrete.
After the hackathon day the student participants (in collaboration with the company representatives) still get 1 week to finalize their solution and create a final pitch to company.
