Business Hackathon

An ideation event (virtual or face-to-face) based on agile methods which serves as an innovation funnel for new ideas and boosts the innovative team spirit.

When you think of establishing an open, effective, and collaborative innovation culture in your company, you would, of course, love to do that in a motivational and engaging way. A business hackathon is a perfect solution – fun, empowering, and effective in bringing new business ideas or potential employees. We brought theory into practice at the International Business Hackathon for Gorenje Group. The company was searching for new Digital Service solutions, but also scouting for new employees.

Get concrete, testable solutions for your business challenges.

Business Hackathon is a 1-2 day event held live or on-line, where groups of up to 5 participants, under the supervision of mentors and support experts, craft on ideas to address a specific challenge, desire, or need.

Target audience

Everyone who wants to participate in the ideation process, especially: 

  • Company employees
  • Targeted audiences (outside organization)
  • Partners, B2B clients, researchers, designers …

Types of hackathons

Face-to-face or virtual event for employees only (Internal hackathon).

  • Large virtual hackathon for up to 500 people (internal or external)
  • Mixed hackathon (employees + partners + researchers, designers …) – virtual or face-to-face
  • 4 – 6 hours mini hackathon session (Innovation Day)
  • 1 or 2-day hackathons

Results that you can expect after a business hackathon:

  • Acquire concrete, testable solutions for your business.
  • Acknowledgment of lean and agile mindset among employees.

“How do you boost creativity and collaboration, when solving challenges in genetics? International biotech hackathon was the answer for us –  CorpoHub team created an inspiring and motivational environment, structured to generate new ideas, bring the best out of people and recruit new potential members of our team.” Marko Bitenc, GenePlanet

“CH workshop was an energy booster in our company. We connected with our co-workers from different sectors, learned to persist even if we fail the first time and mentors successfully pushed us out of our comfort zones. We began to think more openly, differently and most importantly – more positively. This is exactly the culture I want to see in our company and my experience was incredible.” – Bojana Bauerheim, Telekom
