Evangelise. Innovate. Transform. Train. Hack. DESIGN.
A hackathon is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers and project managers set out to build working prototypes. The goal of a hackathon is to create usable software that can be used to solve a defined set of problems that a company has defined.
The concept of a hackathon can be applied to bring people together, to generate and harvest new ideas. It can used in any business setting. It might be software code, but it could be music technology, food, agritech, clothing, dentistry, financial services, cycle tech – you name it. But centrally, we place DESIGN centre stage as the core activity to help you create solutions.
For corporate innovators the internal hackathon is an excellent tool to bring together people from across the organisation – not just the techies – to explore new ideas or identify problems that could be addressed with the right mix of time, thinking and technology.
Likewise, you can combine your staff, with people from outside the organisation to mix up ideas, generate new perspectives and build solutions. An innovative way to train your people, whilst fostering collaboration.
