From Challenge to Prototype in 48 Hours - with the LEAD Hackathons.

Innovations are made by people.

The word Hackathon is a combination of the words "hack" and "marathon". Hacking stands for experimental, creative problem solving with a playful approach. Marathon stands for the duration of the event. A hackathon always focuses on the fun of dealing with a problem and tinkering with solutions. The playful approach, which also includes failure in the meantime, helps to maintain the fun of the events, which usually last several hours.

How does a Hackathon work?

The LEAD Hackathons are two-day events where 3 companies and many creative minds from start-ups, universities and LEAD users from all over the world meet for 48 hours to solve specific problems for trend topics. The Hackathons take place in a unique environment that encourages creative thinking and leads to surprisingly innovative new concepts, ideas and prototypes.
