Dash Hack 2022

A hackathon powered by
design thinking

What is dash hack?

Dash Hack is a weekend-long design thinking hackathon event for multidisciplinary teams to tackle problems provided by our partner companies. This year Dash Hack will be held in Helsinki from Friday 7th October to Sunday 9th October.

During the hackathon, you'll learn how to solve problems by applying design thinking methods, gaining experience from solving real-life cases from versatile companies, and networking with our partner companies. And, of course, the winning team will be awarded!

If you’re open-minded, interested in problem-solving in a multidisciplinary team, and willing to develop yourself professionally – Dash Hack is an event for you!

Challenges

We'll team you up with three other participants with diverse backgrounds. The mission is to hack a unique solution for a real-life challenge. Each team will work and experience the magical atmosphere of a hotel room transformed into workplace-like nests of creativity.

We will announce more details on the challenges, partners, awards, and more information later.

Venue

The hackathon is taking place in Helsinki, Finland. We will be hosting it at a hotel providing an optimal atmosphere for the participants to focus on the challenges. Together with our team, sponsors and hotel, we provide a great weekend long experience for participants and partners. We will announce the venue information later.
