When will the Hackathon take place?
The BCG Platinion hackathon will start in the morning of October 29 and end on the afternoon of October 30. Appropriate travel arrangements will be made for you by us.
Will the hackathon take place remote or on-site?
We plan to meet on-site in Germany (Berlin and/or Frankfurt), Poland (Warsaw), Denmark (Copenhagen) and Italy (Milan) , following all relevant guidelines. If necessary (due to the current circumstances), we will switch to a remote setting.

How do I apply?
Simply apply with your LinkedIn profile or submit your CV here
by October 1, 2021.
What is the main language of the event?
Since the hackathon is an international event, the main language will be English.
Do I need specific technical equipment at home?
You will need a quiet working environment with a computer and a stable internet connection. A working webcam is also needed so that all participants can see each other. As we will be spending a lot of time in front of our computers, we recommend that you set up your computer with everything you need to work ergonomically, such as a mouse, keyboard, additional monitors, and so on.
In addition, you should have your favorite IDE already set up and ready to go; more details on this will be shared ahead of time.
What if I can only join on one of the two event days?
Please avoid joining on only one of the two event days, since the hackathon requires teamwork. All participants will be divided into groups on the first day of the hackathon and will work on ideas throughout both days of the event. On the second day, the final results will be presented to the entire group of participants.
Will I incur any costs?
We will cover all approved event-related travel and accommodations expenses. There is no participation fee.
