The ESMT Hacknight
29-30 September 2018, Berlin
What Is THE ESMT HACKNIGHT 2018?
The ESMT Entrepreneurship Club is glad to announce the first Hackathon hosted by ESMT Berlin. It takes place right in the center of Berlin, one of the most vibrant startup cities in the world. Join us for an overnight with local developers and MBAs from across Europe to develop solutions for the future of education.
Hacking The Future Of Education
Are today’s educational systems and structures preparing future workers adequately? New job titles appear every year that no one could have conceived of ten years previous. How can we hack education to keep up with workplace changes?
Our hackathon will be an opportunity for developers and business people to brainstorm new ideas around this theme. Over the course of one full night, you will exchange ideas with participants from across Europe while building a prototype from scratch that you will pitch the next morning to our panel of experts.
Who Can Participate?
Undergraduate students majoring in computer science, software engineering, and related degrees
Anybody considering themselves techies or geeks, as well as anyone who is passionate about the future of education
How Are Teams Built?
Everyone should register individually. Once registration closes, we will design each team to make sure groups benefit from a wide variety of skills and backgrounds. This will not only broaden your horizons, but will also expose you to cross-functional teamwork, a key aspect of today’s work culture. You will work intensively, shoulder to shoulder, for 14 hours until it is time to pitch your idea to our panel of experts.
- Students who can code and develop functional prototypes. To get this price, please register with your university/school email address.
- Anyone who is not a student and can code and develop functional prototypes.
- Enrolled MBA candidates graduating in 2018, 2019 or 2020.
What’s In It For Me?
Besides gaining valuable insights, learning new skills and networking, you will also have a lot of fun at the ESMT Hacknight! As you will need a lot of energy, plenty of food as well as beer, energy drinks, coffee and soft drinks will be provided throughout the entire event. In the main area, everything will be ready to have a great time, music included. For those of you who need a nap, there will also be a resting area set up.
