The Hackathon Timeline

We start your hackathon journey with an online or in-person kickoff meeting.

During this session, we gather stakeholders to define and agree on key aspects of the event.

This includes choosing a format, deciding on the profile of participants, and other aspects of the hackathon. You'll come away with a clear plan for success.

Once we've defined the key objectives of the event, the next step is production. During this phase, we recruit a dedicated team for your event.

Each member of your hackathon team will be briefed using a detailed
cue-sheet going over the various deliverables required at the end of the event.

Your event is live and you get to experience innovation in action. We manage everything, making sure your final objectives are met.

By the end of the hackathon, awards are handed out to winners and clear candidates rise to the surface.

Congratulations, you've successfully organized a hackathon event!

Afterwards, we collect and synthesize all the key metrics from the hackathon and debrief the whole operation to you. You'll come away with clear insights and actions items.

We worked with Hackathon.com to launch the new Bixby, by hosting a Developer Showcase. The Developer Showcase unveiled new ways for developers to bring a more conversational, personal and useful intelligent assistant experiences to life. It was awesome working with the Hackathon.com team and I plan to partner with them for future projects to attract developers to the Samsung developer ecosystem.
