Meet the team

Helping companies become digital

Since the beginning of 2015, we’ve collaborated with large corporations and over 180 teams, in order to facilitate hackathons and open innovation challenges. A network of talented, tech-savvy and experienced individuals and teams help companies create digital products and solutions through intense hackathon weekends on-site. As a result, we’ve seen new project teams, innovations and successful cultural change happen in organisations all over the Nordics.
