In conjunction with our partner TH.0, we offer virtual and venue based bespoke Hackathons tailored to your requirements or sponsorship at a range of annual events. Hackathons provide opportunities for you to beta test and improve a product, innovate via the collaboration of attendees on new ideas and concepts and offers a novel way to scout potential talent in real time.

INNOVATION - Hackathons effective in speeding up the digitisation of any businesses and its processes. Additionally, they provide an organisation with innovation ideas and create better solutions for an array of business problems. This not only shortens a company’s innovative cycle, but costs less compared to traditional innovation models and moves ideas to prototypes quickly.


TALENT SOURCING - Every successful organization is aware of the various variables that influence business processes and works towards strengthening their value. One invariable factor that all business leaders recognize as the key to business growth is the presence of competent human resources.

Therefore, re-invention is key for any business looking to attract, engage and benefit for a world-class team of employees. Because of the potential of hackathons to offer redefined possibilities to old-HR world problems, their use has increased manifold over the years and is set to rise even further.

For all businesses, hackathons can make the bottom-line difference between staying static and developing something that could transform the future.

Time pressure leads to fast solutions

The fact that employees have a limited amount of time to produce a prototype or solution forces them to adopt the opposite mindset. Instead of working at their own pace or when they feel they have time after priority tasks; they are forced to collaborate with a team to perfect an idea and prove its viability.

No failures, only lessons

Hackathons are a good reminder that failure is a good thing. When people experiment with a team on new ideas, they are likely to venture into interesting places and if they fail, they fail together and learn how to be better. They are also a wonderful way to boost employee morale. There’s nothing like exploring a new project for hours together, uninterrupted to bond teammates with one another.

Reinforcing the right values

Working hard, working fast, working tirelessly, working intensely and working with your team. What entrepreneur or leader wouldn’t want their employees to embrace these values? It’s amazing for everyone to see how much can actually get done when there are no meetings, no phone calls, and no disruptions- just people working together towards a common goal.


The popularity of hackathons has risen dramatically in recent times. An estimate shows that in 2016, hackathons resulted in a staggering 13000+ prototypes while over 80% of the Fortune 100 companies regularly conduct hackathons. 4 years on, and hackathons are becoming bigger than ever!

Adopting hackathons as standard business practice should now become a norm by companies as it fosters innovation, solves problems quicker and gives companies an edge over competitors by hiring the best talent in their industry
