"We are organizing hackathons, community events and workshops all about prototyping, design thinking, agile development and building the right company culture."
Startup Weekend Dresden – 17./18./19. November 2017
We are co-organisators of the Startup Weekend Dresden, one of the biggest, public hackathon events in town. Within 54 hours the participants will pitch their own ideas, chose the best ones to work on them and finally pitch infront of an experienced jury.
during the weekend the teams are supported by coaches from different expertises like product management, business model creation, prototyping, user research and more.
Like for every of our events, we also planned live music acts, networking time during dinner for coaches, sponsors and jury as well as other surprises like yoga and live painter to make the event also fun and unforgetable.
We invited female founders to talk about their stories and business. What they had to struggle with and what they learned. Second highlight of the event was watching the movie "She started it", which is all about international startups founded by woman. After the talks and the movie, all guests had the chance to discuss the topics and listen to live music, which is part of all Hack.Events.
Design Thinking – Coaches
Wadim and Leo were part of a five person coaching team for one of the biggest soft drink companies. Their management and employees had one day crash course in design thinking with its basics and most important tools.
During autumn the days are getting grey and its best time for coding. That's why we organized a hackathon for coders where we mixed young talents from university with senior developers from companies. Five ideas where pitched and the teams worked friday to sunday for presenting a prototype at the end. During live music and buffet learnings and experiences where exchanged.
We showed how mark>powerfull exchange between young students and senior developers could be. The one side showed current technology trends and new frameworks while the others could bring in long years of experience how to architect software.
