See the future from a whole new perspective

What if we could look at today’s challenges from a new perspective and build solutions towards a better future? That’s what the focus of this year’s AE Hackathon is all about: harnessing the power of the newest technologies to build products and services that really make a difference.

A Hackathon is about experimenting with new tech, exploring new business models and building prototypes and mock-ups for tools that may propel your business into bold new directions. That business has not only become ever more digital. Going forward, the world in which your business will operate will also become increasingly virtual. Developments in AI, AR, VR will allow you to add new layers to your interactions with others – be they people or companies. And that in turn will open up a range of opportunities you previously hadn’t deemed possible.

Join our AE Hackathon to seed those new opportunities for your business and to see the future from a whole new perspective.

The AE Hackathon is supported by Seth & Dunn, our hub for innovation.

How does the AE Hackathon work?

The AE Hackathon is a great opportunity for multidisciplinary teams of analysts, developers and product owners to explore new technologies, insights and business models, allowing them to provide answers to the increasingly complex challenges people, organizations and companies are facing today.

At the end of these intense two days, the teams with the best executed ideas get to walk home with our coveted AE Hackathon awards: one for best business idea, and one for best technically executed idea.

Why we organize the AE Hackathon

We organize the AE Hackathon to boost innovation, at AE and at our customers. Participating in the event can lead to wonderful results. Last year's stories were no exception: from defining a customer journey for grieving people to an application that encourages you to collect karma points and to become a local hero. Curious about similar stories from last year? Please find the complete series of 2018 here.
