Hackathons to Accelerate Innovation

A hackathon is an event typically lasting between 24 and 48 hours in which people come together to creatively solve problems. Although in many cases hackathons focus on developing and testing software prototypes, they do not always involve technology.


Hackathons are unlike any other workshop. A hackathon is an exciting, energizing, intense competition-charged event that engages participants with customer-centric approaches to generate out-of- the-box ideas, while driving innovation and entrepreneurial thinking.



Collaborative learning

Provide participants with the opportunity to learn something new while solving a clearly articulated challenge.

Obtain valuable inputs from subject-matter experts from outside your organization.

Speed-up innovation

Accelerate your innovation process by harvesting numerous ideas in a short period of time.
