Tehnopol Corporate Challenge Hackathon at sTARTUp Day

Powered by 

sTARTUp Day is joining forces with Tehnopol to create the Corporate Challenge Hackathon on 29–30 January! It’s the place where corporates and let’s-find-a-solution minded people meet to hack their brains and prototype their minds away.

A hackathon is your chance to innovate and solve real problems in a creative way. It doesn’t matter if you have loads of experience or you’re just really passionate about an idea – all you need is to find a team and start hacking! We're looking for people with diverse backgrounds, so business and marketing experts, designers, developers, engineers, and field enthusiasts are all welcome passion for solving the challenge is what counts.

▶ We'll start revealing challenges at our Facebook event – keep your eye on that!

There's nothing like the feeling of working on something intensely for a limited time, giving all you have and accomplish incredible things! At the Corporate Challenge Hackathon, you will meet and work together with like-minded people to change the world.

The best teams will not only win awesome prizes but also can pitch on the main stage of sTARTUp Day 2020 in front of investors and entrepreneurs! After working intensely for two days, you'll have January 31 to enjoy the sTARTUp Day festival as it's at the same venue (UT Sports Hall, Ujula 4 in Tartu).
