Highlights 2022


LARGEST HYBRID HACKATHON WORLDWIDE

In 2020, we successfully launched the hybrid Hackathon concept and have not only taken a pioneering role, but also gained valuable experience. The hybrid setup allowed us to preserve the unique HackZurich atmosphere while making the event more accessible to tech talents from around the world who could not or preferred not to travel — giving more people a chance to improve their skills, and increasing the projects envisioned and realized for us and our partners. Reducing the amount of travel per participant also allowed us to improve our environmental footprint.

  • World's best and most creative, passionate talents
