A hackathon is a 54 hours pressure cooker where teams built solutions to the challenges brought by the launching customers/sponsors. The hackathon is also a competition between the teams with a chance to win financial prizes.
The hackathon is optimized for anyone with an innovative solution for the outlined challenges. A full team of 3 to 6 people can apply.
If you are an individual, you can register for the idea you’re interested most and become part of the team.
Every team needs to have 3-6 members with a diverse set of skills.
Important: make sure your team consists of people that can quickly adapt to change, as during our hackathon you will be experiencing time pressure in a dynamic environment.
The intellectual property of the work that is produced throughout the hackathon belongs to the team only if the challenge holder does not mention that the codes should be open source. Check carefully the conditions of each challenge beforehand.
We expect that you will develop a working prototype which will represent your idea. Final presentations are limited to a 5-minute pitch and possible Q&A from the Jury.
Yes, you can. Your idea can present the solution for more challenges. Challenges are there to guide you to think about current issues in the wine industry that are of our partners’ interests.
Mentors are experts on any domain thinkable who are at your disposal throughout the hackathon to help you reach your unexpected discovery.
We will provide food and drinks throughout the event. If you have any special dietary needs, let us know in the application form.
After the hackathon, the winning teams will receive follow-up mentoring and support for developing the product.
