We are honoured to ask your Educational institution to participate in this year Future Forum satellite event – The Hack4Future!

What is the purpose of this event? 
Two-day international hackathon where talented students solve real-life business challenges presented by Ülemiste City companies and by Tallinn European Green Capital.

Why is the event necessary?
This is a chance for students to get a foot in the door of a smarter future by hacking different business challenges. Also, it’s a great way to learn, collaborate and network with other students, universities or companies at the coolest smart business campus in the region.

This year’s hack will focus on two main areas:
– Green & sustainable mobility
– Smart City – Smart Environment for citizens

There are  10 challenges for the participating teams to solve during these 2 exciting days –  Days full of great motivational speeches, small tournaments and matchmaking opportunities with companies.

It is advised to form the teams from students from various faculties, such as: product or service design, marketing and communication, web-design, and entrepreneurial studies. It is beneficial to include at least 1 member with an experience in prototyping, previous hackathon experience is a bonus.

What to expect and how will we support you?

  • All teams will get a sherpa to trust and get support when ideas seem to drain off
  • To keep your team on track we will investigate your idea through 2 evaluation rounds, where you will get very honest feedback but also a strong boost to keep working for towards  The Most Innovative Solution
  • The very best 2 ideas get a chance to pitch their solution on Future Forum Gala Event stage, on 10th of May 
  • Bigger and Smaller prizes for the best teams
  • Matchmaking with companies for apprenticeships and future employment
  • All the Fun you can get, when about 70 young people get together and hit for a hack and party
