Anyone is invited to participate in this hackathon. If you don’t have a team, small teams can be formed on the first day of the hackathon. Teams with interdisciplinary skills are typically the most successful ones – a suggestion for a ‘good’ team mix is to have members with these skill sets:
- UX and Design
- Business and Marketing
