Hackathons and hackdays are an exciting, timeboxed event where groups of individuals join cross functional teams to collaborate on solving new or existing problems, generating new ideas and skills and building team culture. They are the ideal company platform to rapidly skill up, ideate and innovate into the future.
Every team, organisation and objective is different and so to should be each hackathon or hackday that you run. We work with you and your teams to understand your objectives from a culture, innovation and business perspective. We use this information to create an event that is perfectly tailored to you, your people and your customers.

We helped this organisation implement an internal hackday program, starting by piloting an initial program with 10 teams and 100 hack participants which scaled up to a program with 1300 potential participants and 24 confirmed teams. The program continues to be successful producing ideas which can now be seen in the institutions products and services.
Media and Risk Trading
We have worked with some of Australia’s top brands helping them to rapidly innovate through lightweight single day Hackathons. One event with just 40 participants produced 6 successful product pitches to the executive (all receiving funding). We often couple these with a strategy day to reconfirm mission and vision and deliver an aligned product roadmap for new ideas.
