A hackathon is a form of customizable crowdsourcing, targeted at creatively solving problems in a highly collaborative environment, that often brings multi-disciplinary teams to brainstorm ideas, build prototype solutions, and develop designs. It is results-driven, with specific outcomes in mind, driving for a solution. An experience of making a solution without heavy development.
Hackathons are not only used to solve technical problems, but they are creative processes that can be applied more broadly, such as:
Though hackathon structures can vary widely, all share the same organizing principles— collaboration, crowdsourcing, competition, and creative problem-solving. These exciting and interactive events can last hours, days, or even weeks, bringing people together to ideate, test and accelerate new ideas in a low-risk environment.
We don’t believe solutions are one-size-fits-all. That is why we work together with our clients to ensure the right questions are being asked to address organizational challenges and collectively target the audience who will work to solve these challenges. We then build your challenge to tackle your organization’s most pressing needs.
Holding a successful hackathon requires an ecosystem of partners from government, industry, academia, and local incubators. The diversity of partners helps approach the challenge from a different perspective, bring additional resources/assets to the event, and helps create excitement.
With recent partners such as the U.S. Department of Navy, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, a major league baseball team, Booz Allen has no limits to ensuring the right community is brought together to discover innovative responses to a variety of issues ranging from national security to baseball analytics.
