START hack IS BACK
Connect with highly-motivated and talented coders at START Hack and tackle case challenges posed by our partners
For the first time ever, START Hack will take place online as well as in 3 physical locations: St. Gallen, Berlin and Copenhagen
Use START Hack as a platform to kickstart your entrepreneurial journey - we unite the two worlds of technology and entrepreneurship
From Hacker to tech entrepreneur
01 | Business Foundation
At START Hack, we equip you with the skills needed in the world of entrepreneurship. Learn about founding and running startups, using the ecosystem to your advantage, profiling and getting to know how to transfer your ideas into a valid business case. We offer tailor-made online content before the event and workshops during it.
02 | START Hack
Our physical hackathon is the opportunity to connect with like-minded people, share and exchange your ideas and start building your prototype. START Hack provides a truly engaging environment with challenging cases by our partners, workshops, and, of course, all the other benefits a good hackathon brings.
03 | START Summit
To strengthen the bridge between entrepreneurship and technology, every participant will receive a free ticket for START Summit - Europe's biggest student-run entrepreneurship conference. Here, participants can find their future co-founders, meet investors and challenge their ideas to bring them to the next level!
04 | Growth
Having a working prototype is great! However, how to go about it from there? As we want to leverage the potential that lies in our creative and innovative participants, START Hack is partnering with incubators, mentors and more to help them make the next steps into launching their own startup.
Future of Work
Pitching is not just a means to an end – it is how you communicate your story, share your passion and the way in which you constantly continue to better understand your business. McKinsey gave the participants handy tools and helpful advice on how to make the START Hack Judges fall in love with their product.
You have drafted a great UI/UX design and are now questioning yourself how to transform everything into Code. Julian Willner from Pickar.ai showed the participants several tools and processes to make the translation easier, faster and more efficient.
Nearly every application relies on a database. Setting up a database can be tedious with many solutions. Not so, with MongoDB. The MongoDB team provided an overview on how to leverage their product to simply launch a process locally on your laptop or desktop, or run it even more simply in the cloud using MongoDB Atlas.
