What is a hackathon? What is a pitch?

A hackathon is an intense learning session during which students have to respond to a challenge. Hackathons on the talent.nextlab.tech platform are preceded by several preparatory lessons that help students to respond to the challenge. Students who solve the challenge will gain valuable knowledge for the job market. Some of them will be hired by the company organizing the hackathon.

Solving the challenge will be demonstrated using a video pitch and possibly computer applications or other digital materials. A video pitch is a video of maximum 2 minutes in which participants present their achievements. Pitches will be judged both in terms of the content that relates to the challenge and the digital storytelling ability that the hackathonists demonstrate. We recommend visiting the Students section to learn some tips on how to make a quality pitch.
