What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a focused 24-hour event where students come together in small teams to share ideas and build something new and exciting, alongside a whole bunch of like-minded people. You learn immensely with the help of mentors, interact with companies and have fun! Hackathons are very beginner friendly!


What's in it for me?

As a participant, you get the following:

  • A weekend of innovation and fun with 150 smartest technologists
  • Interaction with top tech companies in the region
  • Workshops and talks by experienced professionals (more info on that later)
  • Free food, drinks & swag
  • Prizes

If you wish to take another role (e.g. sponsor, mentor, speaker), please do contact us!

How much does it cost?

Nothing. Attending Hack Košice is 100% free, and we’d like to thank our future awesome sponsors who will make it possible!

Moreover, we will likely be able to provide partial reimbursement if you are travelling from abroad. Stay updated for more info.

Do I need to be a student?

Yes. Only students who are currently enrolled at a college/university or have graduated within the past 12 months are eligible to attend.
However, are you interested in this event or totally excited about it? You can also be a volunteer, mentor, sponsor or judge. Contact us!

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes, there is. We enforce these rules very strongly. You can find it here.

Do I need to apply?

Yes. If you subscribe to updates, we can let you know as soon as applications open. Stay tuned!

Why do I need to provide a CV?

Select sponsors will have access to your CV. This is so that you can get on their radar and they can get your contact details for recruitment purposes. It’s a win-win!

Will we work in teams?

Yes, you can find a team of up to 4 people. However, if you come alone, you can participate in our team formation event at the beginning of the hackathon, where you can meet others with similar interests and complementary skillsets
