About the Hackathon
Are you interested in exploring new ideas? Are you ready to create technology solutions for the next generation of our ways of working? Are you an IT architect, designer, software developer, engineer, or just someone who is deeply immersed in the tech universe?
We want to explore new ideas, create efficient, sustainable and convenient solutions—to accompany the challenges of now and tomorrow.
Better solutions are born not in isolation but out of great collaboration: Our aim is to bring participants all over Europe together on two days, cluster them into teams, and turn their ideas into reality! Teams will work together in workspaces, supported by a group of experienced
BCG Platinion experts. At the end of the two-day hackathon, each team will present its product in a short pitch—and yes, there will also be a prize for the winning team!
Stay tuned for the Hackathon 2022!

Who should apply to
BCG Platinion's hackathon?
You should apply if you are a young professional who has a passion for digital topics and coding. If you are an IT architect, engineer, designer, technical consultant, software developer or similar who focuses on topics like creating apps, data science and engineering, or web solutions, this event is for you!
Are there any specific requirements regarding my IT skills? You should have at least some basic coding skills to participate.
What is the main language of the event? Since the hackathon is an international event, the main language will be English.
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.
