HerHackathon welcomes applications from female individuals (including those who identify as female), encompassing students, young professionals, professionals, and freelancers with a keen interest and preferably some experience in designing and developing digital applications and processes. We encourage talents from diverse backgrounds, spanning IT, Business, Marketing, Design, and more, to participate. Applicants must be at least 18 years old on the event day and located within Europe.
To apply, navigate to our website during the application phase and complete the survey available. Ensure you have your CV prepared for upload. You can select and apply for up to three different challenges, prioritizing them according to your preference. Following a brief profile review, you will receive either a confirmation of participation in HerHackathon or a rejection. If you are part of a team, make sure you and your teammates specify the team name and align on the same challenge preferences.
No need to worry! HerHackathon is designed for networking with fellow tech talents. Pre-event we’ll assist you in connecting with others to form a team.
Unfortunately not, participation must be in person as it is a fully live event.
Participation is entirely free of charge. Additionally, a travel allowance is provided.
The organizers do not supply the IT equipment (hardware and software) required for idea implementation. Participants are responsible for bringing their own hardware and software, usually laptops with pre-installed software like Microsoft Office and Slack. If a particular software is necessary for your challenge, the challenge setter will grant access.
For each challenge, the challenge setter will assess the solutions submitted and designate a winning team. The top team from each challenge will advance to the second round, presenting their solutions to an independent jury. The jury will then select three final winners. The prize pool will be evenly distributed among the members of the respective winning teams. Additionally, there is the chance to receive a prize from your individual challenge setter.
Participants retain full rights to the ideas developed during the event, including intellectual property (IP) rights. The organizers facilitate communication between participants and challenge setters, providing an opportunity for bilateral negotiations regarding a license and usage agreement after the event. Any specific regulations pertaining to a particular challenge setter will be communicated to participants by the organizer.
