Hackathons are a tool to stimulate cross-sectoral innovations of start-ups and students

A hackathon is a unique opportunity to get together with different people and work on exciting ideas together. Supported by mentors and experts, a prototype, code, concept or a business model for an innovative solution is developed within a very short time (e.g.: 24h) in a team. It is not uncommon for hackathon teams to stay on site overnight, working through the night and only sleeping a few hours here and there. This is part of the concept and so there are often rest rooms with sleeping facilities at the hackathon. At the end of the event, each team gets the chance to pitch their idea to a jury, which then selects the winning team.
