A common practice in countries all over the world, hackathons require a particular organization in order to ensure high quality projects with potential to evolve on a larger scale. Whether it is for a student innovation challenge or a corporate hackathon, the success of the event is based on a methodology that allows a constant stimulation and progression of the teams throughout the event. Frame your theme well in advance: it is crucial to formulate your theme to ensure that participants understand what is at stake in the challenge. The precision and clarity of the issue allows participants to be able to engage precisely in the development of projects that answer to the issue. This framing also ensures that the objectives of the hackathon are understood by everyone.

    An innovation challenge requires bringing together diverse and multi-disciplinary populations in order to capitalize on the skills of each and build user-centric solutions by the end of the event. The multi-disciplinary nature of the teams ensures a certain quality level at the end of the project.

  • Well-prepared team coaching for a successful hackathon

    Your teams will be coached by facilitators throughout the challenge. They will ensure that each team goes through each step of the Design Thinking methodology. This approach structures the hackathon and boosts its effectiveness.
