What are Hackathons?

A hackathon is a 24, 36, or even 48 hour innovation event in which participants intensively work together in up to six teams to find new solutions (in the form of business plans, software or hardware) to a sustainability or innovation challenge, set by the client.

Participants will be supported and inspired through a series of presentations, and a group of team mentors, and will ultimately present their proposals in front of senior industry executives, who will assess the commercial viability of each project and recommend one for the client’s leadership to take forward.

Expected Outcomes

  • New innovative solutions for your current business challenges
  • Engagement with student and entrepreneurs
  • Opportunities for campus recruitment
