At Dash, we will focus on design process at it's purest, and pay extra attention to the research needed to create innovative and working solutions. We want to create a unique experience where young experts from different fields can meet each other and solve actual problems using well-proven methods.
This event is for everyone interested in design thinking and world-changing. And by everyone, we truly mean everyone – it doesn’t matter whether you are a student or in working life, whether you feel passionate about design, developing or startups, or whether you just find this event interesting and want to see how far your wings can take you.
Design hackathons have the potential to solve real problems, and this something we are going to embrace at Dash! We cannot underline enough the importance of discovering the real problem by understanding the end users.
One way to figure the design process is through a double diamond -model. Previous hackathons have focused on just the second half, developing and delivering. Dash will be the first hackathon going through the whole process, creating more mature and usable solutions to problems.
