A hackathon is an event at which students and/or experts put their heads together to solve a specific problem within a short period. It’s particularly suitable for tough, longstanding issues that need creative solutions, and more and more companies are using it as a business tool. We’re experienced at organising hackathons.
The factory’s authentic details provide an unusual setting, and there’s plenty of space for side events and catering. You can also combine event spaces to suit the needs of your hackathon. For example, the Binnenstraat can serve as a breakout room, temporary kitchen and entrance and/or reception area for a hackathon in the adjoining Middenfabriek or Pulppersloods. Beyond Banking organised a highly successful hackathon at SugarFactory.
