Founded in 2014, HackZurich rapidly became Europe's largest and most prestigious Hackathon. Every year, 600 international participants, selected from a global pool of 5500 applications, representing several elite universities from more than 85 countries, are invited to Zurich. Here these tech talents develop highly innovative web-, mobile- and hardware applications during a 40-hours hackathon in teams of 2 to 4 people. For this Hackathon, international companies and organizations of different industries provide participants with hardware, brand new technologies, tools, and APIs to spark the creation of new prototypes.

HackZurich represents a unique opportunity to touch base with new technologies, innovation opportunities and a selection of the world’s best tech talents. The focus at HackZurich is firmly on fun, exchanging knowledge, and the unique atmosphere and opportunities for mutual learning and inspiration. HackZurich is an unforgettable adventure that each and every tech-talent should have experienced at least once in their lifetime. Join us!
