  • Find folks with the appropriate skills, passion and dedication, able to assist you in turning your genius idea in a viable product or service
  • Receive coaching from experienced entrepreneurs and industry professionals

Thematic

The thematic of our hackathon is what we like to call « the sharing transition ». We define it as the capacity of people and organizations to enable the sharing of data, resources and profit in order to become more collaborative, circular and cooperative. Today, new technologies enable people to easier disrupt traditional business models and entrepreneurs are taking benefit of it to create great startups that have an impact on the society. Be one of them !

IMPORTANT

Participants may not come with an existing business solution or a working prototype. It's only a change-making idea that needs a team to be brought to life! If you already have a concept to pitch, get excited! If not, don't worry we have plenty for you and we'll share them at the right time!
