A hackathon is an “invention marathon” in which teams collaborate to turn crazy ideas into real projects within a tight time limit. At our hackathon, teams of 2-4 collaborate over 36 hours to challenge the status quo, fulfill prize challenges, and create meaningful impact. We provide software, mentors, fun activities, speakers, workshops, buckets of coffee and so much more. You take care of hacking, we’ll take care of you.
START Hack is Europe’s most entrepreneurial hackathon, and this is what makes it stand out. We place a huge emphasis on fostering an entrepreneurial spirit in every one of our attendees, with the main ambition being to spark thinking and creativity that extends far beyond the Hack weekend. This is why we encourage students from business or tech backgrounds to apply.
START Hack 2023 will take place 22nd-24th March 2023, kicking off in the late afternoon.
You might have noticed this is a mid-week event rather than a weekend, and that’s for good reason. Stay tuned for some exciting news!
Nope! START Hack is open to anyone interested in technology and building awesome things, which requires more than just being able to code. We encourage students and young professionals of all backgrounds to apply.
We’ll have a whole host of exciting workshops and resources for participants of all levels, so you can learn more about programming, entrepreneurship, prototyping and much more.
Thanks to our generous sponsors and partners, admission will be free! This includes food, drinks, mentors, workshops, swag, and an unforgettable experience.
Every hacker will get free access to the Summit! However, you must take into consideration that the START Hack and the START Summit take place at the same time. Therefore, you won’t have much time to visit the Summit as a Hacker.
If you have no start-up at the MVP stage running yet, please apply with your start-up idea. You can state your idea in the application and present the idea during your 3-minute pitch video.
