Use the innovation step-by-step process to tackle an assigned challenge and generate a prototyped solution. Present the prototypes in a short pitch before a panel of judges in a “Shark Tank” style event.
We can design and deliver a variety of hackathon formats. One of our favorites is a very short and rapid design sprint that teams engage in during a day. Our hackathon is focused around teams using the skills they learned and developed in collaborating and rapidly generating and developing ideas. Teams swiftly go through the Innovation Step-by-Step process and will determine how they want to focus the challenge into a specific problem area, customer persona, or market. Teams turn their top concept into a 1-2 slide presentation with perhaps a very rapid and rough prototype to physically demonstrate. After just hours of working as a team, the teams will come back together to do short 5 minute pitches.
