What is a Hackathon?

A Hackathon is an event where teams work together to bring an idea to life. It relies on collaboration and creativity to conceptualise and prototype new products and solutions within a limited timeframe.

After identifying a theme or clear business problem, a run way of planning typically spans 6-8 weeks depending on the event. During the hackathon, teams will build their ideas to present and pitch their prototype to a panel of judges and the end of the event.
