What you get - We reworked our concept according the received feedback of supporters and participants after the last hackathon. To provide a higher value to the supporter companies, the challenges of the supporters receive the main focus and no main challenge is available. Therefore the supporters have more freedom in the definition of the challenge and more immediate contact to the participants. Each supporter package includes 2 to 4 tickets for employees. The ticket contains a two-way cable car ticket, food and beverage. If you choose to, you are welcome to share the dormitory with the participants. Since we have more space available for the event, we can provide better visibility for the supporter booths. All supporting companies can hold a presentation on the main stage.
We also hired a professional social media team. They take care of an optimal media presence: before, during and after the event. Become a supporter and get promoted along with the hackathon in the domestic and foreign areas. The social media team will do interviews with each supporter company.
What you have to bring - To become a supporter you can choose between different packages: Platin, Gold and Silver. The table below gives an overview how the supporter packages differ from each other. For details and prices, feel free to contact us on your channel of choice.
