Dattaca Labs, the Fintech Cluster, the Directorate of Health, Arion Bank and the Innovation Week have joined forces and will represent the Hackathon of the Innovation Week 2020.

Hackathons are all about problems and solutions. Companies and organizations present challenges and participants work to solve them in teams. Hacking is thus a mixture of programming and business development competition. They are an especially interesting way to get outsiders to the table and many corporate hackers as a platform for finding talented individuals.





Further information:



Enterprises and organizations involved will present interesting and exciting challenges. Information and data will also be made available in a timely manner so that the teams can prepare well and work on the best solution when the weekend comes.


Who would not be happy to collaborate with the owners of the challenge with the aim of introducing the solution into the person’s activities or even with the aim of putting it on the market.

In addition, all winners will receive a ticket to the Startup Iceland conference.
