Have you heard a lot about blockchain but find it difficult to understand the application of this technology? The best way to find out is to join the Imaguru Blockchain Hackathon in Madrid from October 5 to 7. 48 continuous hours of “hacking” will be dedicated to blockchain: revolutionary technology that is expected to remodel all aspects of our business life in the very near future.
What is the event about?
A hackathon is a competition of teams that develop solutions and develop their technological projects, in our case blockchain. The goal of the hackathon is to bring together blockchain experts, developers, startups, IT companies and corporations to create, develop and accelerate new solutions and innovations.
A hackathon is an extremely effective method for both parties: participants and collaborating companies. Participants can form their teams, get exclusive access to international mentors and, who knows? – they will have the possibility of finding their future investors. Companies can develop and test new blockchain solutions and make the most of networking.
Who organizes the hackathon?
The hackathon is driven by the synergy of international and Spanish collaborators.
Imaguru Startup Hub, Imaguru Startup Hub, the organizer, is a startup and technology knowledge center based in Madrid and Minsk, Belarus. Imaguru has organized more than 50 hackathons around the world (including two blockchain hackathons in Madrid last year). Imaguru Hackathons gave birth to a series of global products, including MSQRD acquired by Facebook in 2015.
IE Business School of Science and Technology, the strategic partner, is the internationally recognized business school whose mission is to educate global professionals and facilitate the development of innovations around the world.
Our startups and developers from Eastern Europe join our hacakthon, which gives us the opportunity to learn about startup ecosystems in other countries. We also expect many guests from the most famous and largest corporations in Spain.
And the agenda?
We launched the hackathon on Friday, October 5 in the afternoon. The preselected teams will work hard throughout the weekend to create blockchain projects. The teams will go through several checkpoints during the hackathon where their progress will be evaluated (and this is not as scary as it seems because the teams will receive help from the best international mentors and developers in Eastern Europe). The results of the hacking marathon, ready prototypes, will be presented on Sunday, October 7, before the international jury.
The winners will receive prizes from Imaguru and other hackathon partners along with access to mentoring and investments for the further development of their projects. And do not forget the most valuable prize: unique, challenging and great experience of continuous hacking in the company of experts and technology geeks that will infect you with your passion for blockchain.
Who can participate?
The hackathon is open to both teams and participants without a team: technology enthusiasts, idea owners, developers and satirups who want to learn to apply blockchain technology, develop their products and obtain valuable connections. The best thing about the application is that it is free.
Still … what’s so special about the hackathon?
Is that the hackathon never ends: once you enter the world of blockchain, you immerse yourself in the community where you meet new people for your team, receive tutoring and technical assistance and you find yourself in the midst of the flow of new ideas.
Let’s innovate together!
The language of the event: English with translation into Spanish.
The difficult thing is not to learn, the difficult thing is to know how to teach.
