Your Challenge, Your Way
Everything is customizable. Create a unique challenge – from timeline and format to submission definition and judging – designed to deliver on your objectives.
YOUR CHALLENGE STRUCTURE
Whether you’re giving participants 24 hours or 24 months to work on one or ten challenge themes, delivering submissions that are live pitches, code-repos or business proposals – if you can imagine it, you can run it on our platform.
IN-PERSON, VIRTUAL OR HYBRID
Organize your virtual challenge and connect participants on Zoom, Teams, WebEx and through our multi-chat or in-person and benefit from our intuitive, mobile and tablet friendly registration system.
YOUR CHALLENGE PAGE
Your participants can find all the details they need to know before they sign up. It’s a place to host your participant resources like embedded videos, linked data and on-demand or live programming like webinars and workshops. Create as many pages as needed and manage access based on pre- and post-registration.
Customize your event page with your brand identity, your logos, your banners and your tone of voice.
Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
Successful innovators have a team to count on, when the countdown is on. Our hackathon platform allows for organic and assigned team formation – ensuring participants can rally around topics they are passionate about or step outside their comfort zone and make new connections.
Participants create unique profiles outlining their skills, interests, ideas and including links to social profiles.
The profile and team matchmaking helps participants virtually search and team-up based on skills, interests and needs. You can watch and let the magic happen, add team parameters like number of participants or assign teams yourself.
Communication is Key
Inform and inspire participants through automated and ad hoc messages, emails, and chat.
SINGLE & MULTI-CHAT
Enable communications between teammates through the single and multi-chat feature.
Schedule and automate emails based on participants’ actions on the platform.
Address innovators around the world in the language of their choice. Currently French and English are available with more to follow!
Stakeholders – Engaged!
The participant journey is what brings your challenge to life for mentors, speakers, judges and other internal and external stakeholders. An intuitive judging process and the ability to embed the tool of your choice for live or on-demand sessions ensure they can full fill their role with joy and ease.
INTUITIVE JUDGING & CUSTOM CRITERIA
Login-protected and fully customizable, our judging process and judge onboarding will impress whether online, onsite, live or at leisure. Create unique submission categories and custom criteria that match your priorities. Assign certain submission categories to expert judges or auto-assign all – and watch the scores roll-in!
Create custom ticket types to allow participants to identify their area of expertise.
Whether you are running one or ten challenges, by yourself or as part of a large team – our hackathon platform is designed to make your life easier.
