Hackathons’ main aim is to bring technology innovation at 360°, giving companies ideas and potential projects they didn’t manage to think for themselves (DISRUPTIVE IDEAS) and giving participants the possibility to reunite with entrepreneurial enthusiast as them and to show themselves to big companies or rising startups.
