What is the Hackathon about?

AustrianStartups is proud to present our first-ever in-house hackathon! A hackathon is an event where, over a short but intense period of time, people come together to work on projects that address set challenges – or simply to build something cool. There are no rules as such on what makes a successful hackathon project; you are welcome to use the time and the opportunity to collaborate however you want. We just love to see what you will do with it!

Who am I working with? And on which project?

You can enter alongside people you already plan to work with, or as an in individual who wants to join in on a given challenge. We already have some great project suggestions on offer so far. The following projects have been suggested by the people below, and they will be acting as coordinators for the teams that will work on them. Click on the project titles to display more infos!
