A unique hackathon, Hack Coworking, will run during London Tech Week 2019. The event comes from a collaboration between Coworkies and HubHub, and aims to bring London’s tech community together to explore challenges around connectivity, experience and workplace wellbeing.
Coworkies is based in Berlin, while HubHub is an international co-working brand with a local focus for each of its spaces.
The London event will take place in 20 Farringdon Street. It will involve established prop-tech firms including international workspace provider HB Reavis, electronic access company SALTO Systems, and Cobot, the management software for co-working and flexible workspaces.
Each brand will set Hack Coworking participants a challenge to solve and will provide prizes to top performers, including a £3,500 cash rewards pot, and a number of other benefits including:
- Three months of free co-working at HubHub
- Tickets to the London Coworking Conference (£150 per piece)
- The ability to present your project as a challenger at the London Coworking Conference in front of 100+ industry professionals and potential investors
- Amazon Web Services (AWS) credits
As well as solving real-life business skills, access to unique talks from co-working experts and breakout learning sessions, Hack Coworking participants will get networking opportunities and access to breakout learning sessions.
