Hackathons for every industry: Start innovating and join mobilty{hacks} in Berlin in December!

Events for accelerating innovation

The digitalization is rapidly changing every industry. The need to not only adapt to new developments but to become a leader in one’s field is getting more and more urgent. To accelerate innovation and collaborative creativity, different event formats have evolved. Amongst them you will find Lean Startup and Design Thinking workshops that will help you identify challenges by interviewing your customers and questioning your own assumptions. These formats often include some rapid prototyping but – depending on the duration – it may not be more than a lego brick prototype or a fun theatre-like presentation. If you want more, you will need to put more time and effort into the development of digital prototypes.

What if…? Digital prototypes in 24 hours

What if, however, there was a way to give your challenge to a team of highly skilled people? Without the boundaries of having well-grounded but fixed ideas on how your industry works or should work? Or what if you have so much data you don’t know what else could be possible? Wouldn’t you appreciate someone coming up with not only ideas but prototypical tested applications for your data?

Whether you are a startup or a big corporation – externally gathered inspiration will help you to internally pursue new ideas. Hackerstolz, a young association from the metropolitan area Rhine-Neckar organizes hackathons in Germany and brings together different companies with different challenges. After organizing hackathons for different topics like smarter cities, food and innovation, we present our second hackathon this year in Berlin: mobility{hacks}.

Mobility hackathon: Join as sponsor or participant

Four different sponsors will be able to pitch their challenge to the participants. They provide data, APIs or whatever else is needed to prototype solutions. The official hackathon starts on Saturday but on Friday, December 2, there will be an informal team building session to find team members or an idea. Hacking begins on Saturday, December 3, after registration and opening presentations and will continue on until Sunday at noon. After a lunch break, the teams will present their results to an expert jury, followed by an award ceremony and a beer, pretzels and ice cream reception with sponsors.

For participants:
