Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon and why should I participate?

We think of our hackathon as an "invention marathons" where participants have no restraints. Unlike other events, we don’t want you to come up with a startup MVP or a solution to a corporate problem. Unleash your creativity and technical skills!  There are several reasons why you should join a hackathon. You will get free food and snacks for the whole weekend, and you can get to know a lot of new like-minded people and expand your network. You can also extend your skillset and learn a lot of new things while having fun. Lastly, you can add it to your CV and present this experience to your potential employer. Learn more in a blogpost from one of our former hackers.
