The five tools that make up your Hacker's Toolkit
The Hacker Mindset
At Hackathons, newly formed teams need to work together cohesively to create a tangible solution. Ensure that the team has a strong vision and that everyone is on track to do their part in creating an achievable solution.
Brainstorming. Love it or hate it, it's an essential (but also a very time consuming) step of the Hackathon process. Help your team speed things up by using a structured framework based on design thinking. By the end you will have one solid idea to pursue. All of this, in only one hour.
Hacker's Lean Canvas
It's easy to focus on the short-term goal of having a prototype ready for judging. Stand out from the crowd by having a holistic view of how your solution fits into a bigger goal and strategy.
Business Model CPR
Breathe life into your solution. Position your product so that it adds value and creates happy customers. Attract potential investors with an understanding on how you will create a sustainable and measurable profit margin.
Pitch Like A Pro
What the judges see is often more important than how good your idea is. Secure your success by knowing how you will pitch your solution from the very start - ensuring that the judges can clearly understand the solution you've built.
