So what is a hackathon? A hackathon is a competition where participants are invited to come up with the most innovative and ingenous response to a social, business or environmental challenge.

“A hackathon lasts between 24 and 48 hours and is dedicated to a specific topic or challenge. The participants work in small groups in a unique environment that encourages creative thinking and leads to surprisingly innovative new concepts, ideas, and prototypes. The result of the hackathon is a finished prototype for an innovative product, service or business model.” Lead Innovation
