Coffee Hackathon

Innovation does not happen out of nowhere. It is created in a process that demands structure and absolute freedom to possibility.

Innovation does not happen out of nowhere. It is created in a process that demands structure and absolute freedom to possibility. Not letting limits affect your mind is crucial while shaping the future.
One concept of getting your mind free of limits and support innovation is a hackathon.
This concept, which is originated in the IT sector, is about developing a small prototype which faces a specific problem, by getting together in a group and let your thoughts free.

This weekend, the Innolab in combination with WIK Essen (http://www.WIK-group.com) hosts a Hackathon where students should develop new ideas or business models for the future with coffee.
The Hackathon lasts three days, starting on Friday afternoon until sunday afternoon. Eleven students and three lecturers attends.
