The production company has run into some issues and has cancelled the event :( Too bad we were really looking forward to it and so where the 36 motivated hackers that signed up.
It is like any startup hackathon you may have already participated in (Startup Weekend, Lean Startup Machine, etc.) but the projects are already chosen. You will not know who are the finalists until the hackathon and then you will form teams to help them out.
The challenge: to help starters in very different kinds of companies, that may or not be technology related.
What the starters get: motivated and experienced professionals to help them kickstart their business.
What you get: you get to take part in another hackathon with all the thrills and satisfaction that it brings, and you will be on TV ! There will be cameras going around to interview the participants and to film the progress of the hackathon. Your mom will still not understand what you are doing, but she will be proud!
How it will work: meetup on Monday afternoon for pitching and choosing teams. Get to work. Go home to sleep. Back on Tuesday for a full day of startup hacking. Food and drinks will be provided so that you can focus all your energy on the startups.
Language: mostly French.
- Monday February 4 from 13h to 18h.
- Tuesday February 5 from 9h to 18h.
Place: the Lavoisier building of the SDRB (we’ve visited the building and it is great). Rue de Koninck 80, 1080 Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Belgium.
And remember, there will be a Betagroup Pitch Slam on the 5th right after the end of the hackathon: don’t miss it!
