What is Hackathon ?

The word “hackathon” has recently become one of the hottest terms in the business world. This term describes an event that pools enthusiastic entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs into a confined space for a half-day or two and challenges them to create the implementable innovative solutions for solving business problems.
However, hackathons are more than a fad for the start-up crowd. Growing numbers of businesses are using the same principles to break through corporate bottlenecks and instill more result-driven innovation culture.
Hackathons differ from more traditional brainstorming sessions, because they are all about getting results and jump-starting new ways of working—not just generating ideas. If a Hackathon is done well, it can shave up to 50% off the time normally required to bring a service or product to market.

Why Hackathon ?

For many organizations, the traditional development cycle can require six months to over a year for envisioning, building, and releasing a new customer experience.
InnoEdge Hackathons sharply advance that process. In some cases, we have seen prototypes tested, built out, and scaled in an accelerated four- to six-week cycle. The result-driven, constructive, ready-made building blocks generated by Hackathons can allow medium to large enterprises an experience of what the future could be like.

Our Deliverable

The result-driven, constructive, ready-made building blocks generated by hackathons can allow medium to large enterprises an experience of what the future could be like. Hackathons can provide that experience in a way that is both exciting and reassuring. By removing some of the perceived risk surrounding innovation, hackathons can be an effective way to accelerate the transformation of customer experience.
