01

Hackathon

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.

02

IMPULSES & INSPIRATION

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.

03

INTERACTION

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

This year, the teams will run through three different levels and compete in six tracks, each with different challenges. The first level focuses on the idea, the second on user-centricity and the third on technical implementation. Only the best teams proceed to the higher levels and will have the opportunity to develop their idea further.

Hackathon

Gamification

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!
