Symbioticon 20/21

digital only

Identify relevant trends, develop real #gamechanger ideas and win up to €32,000! In addition to the Hackathon of the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe, the fifth edition of Symbioticon 20/21 also offers an exciting supporting program with top-class keynotes and plenty of space for networking. Here on the platform you will find, in addition to exciting insights, the opportunity to support your favorite teams directly online.



The motto #Gamechanger gives it away: A lot of new and exciting changes are waiting for the teams this year - all digital and extended to several levels. What is needed are ideas that are bold enough to be tried out, offer real added value for Sparkasse customers and thus become #Gamechanger themselves.



Within the framework of the competition, all online viewers can participate in live streaming events, exchange views and network. The focus will be on three topics that we consider to be particularly relevant: Green Finance, New Work and All Digital.



You can follow the digital hackathon up close via our online platform. The interaction between the participants and the Sparkasse, partners and audience also runs via the platform. This creates the opportunity to experience and interact with the teams and their ideas at any time and to vote for the best competition ideas.

Level Up

Step by Step

In this Symbioticon, the teams go through three different levels and compete against each other in six tracks, each with different challenges. In the first level, the focus was on the idea, in the second on user-centricity. Now in the final level 'Battle of the Tracks' the teams will present their ideas at the highest level of technical maturity we have ever had at a Symbioticon.



Let the games begin

To get the necessary spice into this year's Hackathon, we used different mechanics to make it as exciting as possible. Starting with the different time periods of the levels, up to the badges. They are a fundamental pillar of this hackathon, because they should motivate you to stay in touch with the jury and spectators. Earn the badges, convince the crowd, the jury and go for gold!
