Our newly launched Hackathons have been designed to bring you together with other industry leaders from your sector to come up with innovative and pioneering solutions to tackle the problems that keep you up at night.

During the day, you’ll gain valuable insights from your peers and other leading organisations in your field as well as access to technical experts from ANS and Microsoft.

During the Hackathon, each organisation will be split into a group where you’ll talk through the main challenges your organisation is facing, as well as exploring the opportunities to embrace leading edge innovation. Once you’ve decided on the challenge you’d like to resolve, we’ll ask you to start thinking about the outcomes you want to create and how you’ll deliver this with your blow-you-socks off solution.

At the end of the event, you’ll present your challenge, solution and outcome to the room. The best two teams as voted for by all the groups with then go head to head to battle it out in front of our judging panel to scoop our prestigious Hackathon Champions 2019 title!

Who should I bring along?

To enable you to get the most out of the event, we’d ask you to try and bring a team of 5 or 6 and a mix of both technical and non-technical people to help you come up with a range of ideas.

For more information about our hackathons and to find out how you can register, please speak to your account manager.
