Hackathon Digital Construction



Do you want to change construction industry? Join our Hackathon!


During the weekend of April 20-22, 2018, you will co-create new innovative solutions for construction companies. Together with over 50 other enthusiasts, you will make your idea become a reality! You will be surrounded by the best coaches, developers and designers from Belgium. They will help your dream for a “Digital Construction” to turn into a startup! 

During 48 hours dedicated to create digital & innovating solutions for construction companies, you will provide wonderful new projects. From Friday evening, you will work by team composed of different profiles from all around Belgium: IT, business, construction and design. This multidisciplinary will give the opportunity to each group to transform dreaming ideas to concrete solutions with real business opportunities. 

This weekend gives attendees the chance to be exposed to and work with the entrepreneurial and business tools and be guided by 8 coaches during all the event. Each of you will acquire new skills and an unforgettable experience. 

Sunday afternoon is your chance to pitch your final project in front of a jury composed of CEOs, chiefs in innovation and startup owners. All presentations and project development will be carried out in Open Innovation.

Who will be the participants? 

A hackathon is not only for geeks! The power of a team is made by different experiences and expertise of each person. Either you are a student, a construction guy, have a business profile or even a startup, you are welcome to join and develop new solutions for the construction sector. 

You don't need to have a technical background to participate. Just join us with your knowledge, open mind, collaborative spirit, and willingness to solve the everyday problems encountered by construction actors.
