„Hinterland Hack“ is a hackathon in which corporate challengers present 6 challenges based on current business problems which participants try to solve in an innovative technology-enabled way within 48 hours. During the whole weekend, from friday to sunday, 12 teams are hacking the 6 challenges, 2 teams for each challenge who work separately on a respective solution.
Selected top mentors, representatives of the corporates and the Founders Foundation team are available to all teams at all times and provide support wherever possible or needed. Short „topic blocks“, such as e.g. pitch trainings, are always offered optionally by experts from the Founders Foundation community.
The Solution Day on Sunday is the final event where all teams pitch their results. For each challenge, a winner is chosen. From amongst the winners per challenge the overall hack winner is selected and will receive a price of 5.000€.
