Dash 2017 – the largest hackathon for design thinkers in Europe!
Organized by Aaltoes, student organization for entrepreneurship
Startup Sauna, Espoo, Finland
Applications by October 18!
Design hackathon Dash is in many ways like a traditional hackathon, but there’s one thing that differentiates us from all the rest. Dash will be all about problem solving using design thinking, and actually doing research about the problem being solved.
Dash is a design-hackathon like no other! This weekend-long gathering of the brightest young talents is the largest design thinking hackathon ever organized in Europe. At Dash, we will focus on the design process at its purest, and pay extra attention to the research needed to create innovative and working solutions to the problems of today. Behind Dash is Aaltoes, the biggest and best known student organization for entrepreneurship in Finland, whose handywork also Slush and Junction initially are.
The event takes place 3rd to 5th November in Otaniemi, Finland. Hop on board to find out what design thinking has to offer!
The main focus of Dash will obviously be on creation. Choose your field of design challenge and go wild with it! We want to see you come up with creative and working solutions – while working in multidisciplinary teams.
