A sprint-like event where participants team up and create solutions to real-life challenges in an intense period of time. Using creativity, technology and mentoring, the week results in prototypes, fresh new concepts and innovation.

Code #LikeABosch is a hybrid hackathon looking for students, fresh graduates or early stage startuppers who are willing to solve the challenges given by Bosch in 48 hours offline in Budapest or online.

  1. Find your teammates. Or apply solo, and ask to be added to a brand new team if you want. Lone wolves are also welcome.
  2. Register!
  3. Join us on the 30th of September and start brainstorming.
  4. Work on your solution with your team via Slack.
  5. Feel free to request mentoring on your project from experts.
  6. Submit your project video by 10:00 on the 2nd of October.
  7. Take home your prize!

To submit your project create a 2 minute video pitch, upload it to YouTube and link it on the submission form, along with a GitHub repo. The video can have you talking, a live app demo (if you have one), some cool animation, etc... whatever fits best. Please observe these conditions strictly as in other cases we will unfortunately not be able to evaluate your project.

You can find information about this at the Game Rules part.

As soon as we have the 8 finalist teams, we will ask them to prepare for the live pitch. They will have to present their ideas in 4 minutes and after each pitch there will be a quick Q&A session. This part aims to provide a closer insight into these solutions. In the interest of having a fair selection, we only take into consideration the registered teams’ and the partners’ votes since they will have the most relevant opinion and insight into the projects.

  • Teams will have to go to JunctionApp where they will see the finalists and choose their favorite
  • And partners will get a voting form where they also have to give their favorite team’s name

We will announce the grand winner as a summarized result of both of these voting methods.

It is possible to win a Challenge Prize, the Grand Prize and the Audience Award. The only thing that's not possible is winning more than one Challenge Prize, since all of teams can submit their project to no more than one challenge.
