Why do a corporate hackathon?

In a world where technology is affecting every aspect of your consumers’ lives , your company needs to not just keep up, but stay ahead of the pack.

  • Get your teams to innovate and get new ideas flowing within the business, outside of ordinary environments.
  • Give your teams the stimulus to find new approaches to age-old problems.
  • Help your company stay abreast of markets that are changing at a rapid pace.
  • Attract, retain and energise your best talent

The energy and atmosphere we create at your corporate hackathon will help foster a new way of thinking within your organisation – where collaboration and innovation are the norm, and where ideas don’t just belong to one department. Your teams will become inspired and challenged, and will learn the tools and speed of startup development, bringing that learning back into the organisation.
