What is hackathon?
Hackathons are events in which small teams of specialists from different fields work together to solve a problem identified by the host company. Hackathons can be held for both external participants and company employees.
Hackathons are used to search for innovative solutions of a low level of readiness for the purpose of further refinement, as well as to find and attract qualified personnel. Based on the hackathon results, the company may decide to finance a startup for revision and further use of the idea, or to hire promising employees. Hackathons are most often used to develop IT solutions. Usually hackathons last from one day to a week. The site can be created both inside the corporate office and on the basis of a third-party hackathon. During the hackathon, external or internal experts (marketers, business analysts, developers, etc.) are present to advise the teams during the event, and also evaluate their final work together with the organizer. Hackathons are often held in partnership with educational or research organizations (universities). The role of HEIs is to attract participants (students and young scientists), as well as to provide scientific and technological expertise for solutions.
Advantages: Search for promising personnel, focus on solving a specific problem, working out new ideas for the company.
