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 250 smartest peers
    • 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 Kosice is 100% free, and we’d like to thank our awesome sponsors who make it possible!

In addition to that, you will enjoy a lot of free food and swag during the event.

Do I need to be a student?

Only students who are currently enrolled at a high school, college, university or graduated in past 12 months are eligible to attend.
