Getting excited for this year's hack!

Last year we gathered 100 awesome hackers in 25 teams at the top of Gothia Towers and during 10 hours they created some really cool stuff.

We feel like continuing the tradition the Hack and the Startup Arena. Feel free to look around. Mayhaps send us one of those emails if there's anything on your mind.

Press: We have a newsroom where you can follow us! Woho! Follow Gothenburg Startup Hack

Practical Info

Gothenburg Startup Hack is about building and demoing a product prototype.

We prefer fresh ideas and technological innovation over a solid business case. Don't worry about the numbers or the bottom line — use your imagination, think outside the box and go nuts!

This hack is about building stuff — a demo with just a PowerPoint presentation ain't gonna fly.

We will be hosting a meetup April 11 — where we'll all hang out and meet each other. Looking for a team or more team members? This is the right place to be! Sign up for the meetup here

Once you have put together a versatile team, make sure to sign up before the application deadline — .

We think that the best teams are made up of people with different skills and different backgrounds.

We recommend team sizes between 3 to 5 people.

Finally, the hack takes place on May 6. Be prepared to hack from early in the morning 'til late in the evening.

We will keep you comfortable and make sure you are fed all the way through.
