GreenTech Hackathon 2021


Why this hackathon?

Climate change is one of the many pressing challenges our society is currently facing. At Vandebron we want to continue trying to find ways to tackle this immense challenge. That’s why we’re organizing a 3-day GreenTech hackathon from March 31st to April 2nd.

During this free online event, we're trying to find technological solutions to problems in wildlife conservation and renewable energy. And you can join us! In these three days, you get the opportunity to work on challenges from our partners, access their technology and knowledge, and you'll get the chance to win unique prizes. Besides, on April 1st (no joke) different speakers will share their expertise and experiences with you.

We'd love to have you on board, registration for both the hackathon and speaker event are now open via the button below (deadline Wednesday March 24th).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I join without technical knowledge?

Yes! We invite everyone to participate in the event, even without technical knowledge you can still create cool prototypes or use your imagination to make the perfect hackathon project come to life. Also, you can be teamed up with more technical people during our team matchmaking event.

How many team members do I need?

Nobody likes to ride solo, so we advise you to sign up with a team of 2 to 5 people. If possible, it's best if you're able to combine the skill set of your team!

What if I don't have a team yet?

No problem! Before the event, we'll organize a team matchmaking event for those who have signed up individually. Based on your skillset and the challenge you prefer working on we try to create an optimal team.

Can I only join the event with speakers?

Yes, you can! If you don't have the time or not looking forward to joining the hackathon, you can still signup for the LinkedIn event and join us on April 1st to learn more about climate challenges and the energy transition.
